With some 8 faculty members and a couple dozens of postdocs and graduate students, NCU operates a suite of small telescopes at Lulin Observatory, the largest being a humble one meter to conduct niche projects, notably of cosmic variable phenomena.  I will describe how we study from violent explosive events to solar-system bodies by joining high-profile international collaborations and at the same time also by our own leading efforts.


Prof. Chen is Chair Professor of Astronomy at NCU, with specialties in observational star formation, star clusters, and cosmic variability.
