About the Author

Yen Chin Ong obtained his Ph.D in Astrophysics from National Taiwan University in 2014, where he was a member of the Leung Center for Cosmology and Particle Astrophysics (LeCosPA). Prior to this, he obtained a B.Sc.(Hons), as well as a M.Sc., from the Department of Mathematics, National University of Singapore. Currently he holds a fellow position at Nordic Institute for Theoretical Physics (NORDITA). His primary interest is in black hole physics, especially the properties of various types of black holes in both general relativity and modified gravity, at both classical and quantum levels. He also works on other aspects of gravity and high energy physics, such as cosmology and holography. During his Ph.D program, he wrote 13 articles and 11 of them were published in high-impact journals, such as JHEP, JCAP, PLB, PRD and CQG. By now the total citation to his articles is over 200. In addition to excellence in research, he also received a teaching award in 2014, awarded by National Taiwan University.
