|Pulsars and Fast Radio Bursts (FRB) are some of the most energetic and "fast" astronomical objects. They are both possibly from "neutron stars". In this talk, I will introduce some of my group and collaborators' pulsars and FRB research using the Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical radio Telescope (FAST). I will talk about the discovery and timing of new pulsars, testing theories of gravitation using pulsar timing, and measuring pulsar emission and geometry. I will also talk about some of the FAST FRB key science project results, including the large sample repeating FRB studies and the radio follow-up of the Galactic FRB source -- SGR J1935+2154.
|Weiwei Zhu got his PhD from McGill University (2011). After that, he worked as a post-doc at the University of British Columbia in Canada and then at the Max-Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Germany. He joined the National Astronomical Observatories, Chinese Academy of Science (NAOC) as a professor in 2017 and has been working with the early science and commissioning team of FAST and serving as a key member of some FAST key science projects. Now he studies pulsars and Fast Radio Bursts using FAST and the Square Kilometer Array (SKA) precursors.
