Two suggested configurations for the Chinese space telescope by Li-Ping Fu and Zu-Hui Fan

Li-Ping Fu

Dr. Li-Ping Fu

Biref introduction:

Dr. Liping Fu is an Associate Professor of Astronomy in Shanghai Key Lab for Astrophysics, Shanghai Normal University, Shanghai, China. She obtained her PhD (Marie Curie fellow) degree in the Institut d'Astrophysique de Paris (IAP) and Université Pierre & Marie Curie, Paris, in 2008. She was offered a postdoctoral fellowship of the European Community Research Training Network (DUEL, Marie Curie fellow) at INAF Osservatorio Astronomico di Capodimonte in Napoli, Italy from 2008 to 2010. She is the member of European CFHTLenS Project.

Her current research interests are the field of gravitational lensing, especially cosmic shear and its cosmological applications. She explored the cosmic shear signal to the linear regime based on CFHTLS wide survey. She also measures two-point and three-point correlations of cosmic shear in CFHTLenS data.


Zu-Hui Fan

Prof. Zuhui Fan

Present positions:

Professor in Department of Astronomy School of Physics. Peking University

Biref introduction:

Zuhui Fan received her Ph.D. degree in physics in 1995 from University of Washington, USA. She then moved to Department of Astronomy and Astrophysics, Univ. of Chicago as a visiting scientist (1996 to 2002). She was a postdoctoral fellow at ASIAA and National Taiwan University from Sept. 1999 to Feb. 2000. Since June 2002, she has been a professor at Department of Astronomy, Peking University. Her research interests include cosmology and large-scale structures, particularly on weak-lensing studies.
