Doosoo Yoon in 2018

I am a postdoctoral fellow, working with Prof. Sera Markoff at Anton Pannekoek Institute for Astronomy. Using GRMHD code H-AMR, I’ve been studying the dynamics of accretion disk, wind, and jets around black holes. As a member of the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) project, I’ve been particiapting in the collaborative investigation that explores the nature of supermassive black holes, such as Sgr A* and M87.

Before the current position, I was a CAS PIFI Fellow Postdoctor working with Prof. Feng Yuan and his group members at Shanghai Astronomical Observatory. I truely have diverse interests on astrophysical outflows and their impact on the environment. With Prof. Yuan, I have studied the theoretically the effects of Active Galactic Nuclei Feedback on the evolution of isolated Early Type Galaxies considering the galactic rotation and its angular momentum transport outward.

I graduated at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, supervised by Prof. Sebastian Heinz. Using theory and/or numerical simulations, I’d studied the dynamics of (semi-)relativistic outflows from compact objects interacting with the interstellar matter. My major interests were jets from high(low) mass X-ray binaries and bow shock pulsar wind nebulae.

Before starting Phd program in US, as a member of CnTAG at the Seoul National University in South Korea, I’d studied a gaseous dynamics about barred spiral galaxies regarding with the effects of self-gravity . This project was supervised by Prof. Woong-Tae Kim.

Outside the research, I love to play any sports especially with ball such as soccer, basket ball, tennis, ping-pong, and so on. Also, I like traveling everywhere and playing guitar.
