about me


Fan XiLong , Newton  fellow

My current work foucus on mutil-messager (GW-EM) astrophysics.  With the help of EM data (such as galaxy catalog) and GW-EM theoretical prediction (such GW-GRB relation), I try to improve the gravitational waves signals detection with the LIGO-Virgo  instruments. In particular I work on a Bayeian approach to multi-messenger astronomy, with special interest on GW-EM source  sky localization and GW parameter estimation[8,9].

I have spent 3 years understanding the EM data, in particular galaxy properties by galacitc chemial and SED models [ 4,5,6].

Before that,  I spent 3 years  underanding GW research,  in particular GW burst sky locatization [2],  stochastic  GW background detection [1,3] and continous GW detection (draft still on going…).

To help students builting their own research, I conribute myself to  the research  of  GRB offset [7].
