   Gu Minfengwas born in Jiangsu province, PRC, 1974. In 1995, he received his BS degree in the Department of Astronomy, Nanjing University. Then, he joined Shanghai Astronomical Observatory (SHAO), CAS.  After obtaining a Ph.D. degree in 2002 from SHAO, he worked inKorea Astronomy and Space Science Institute as a postdoctoral fellow (2002-2003).In 2010, he visited University of California, Santa Barbara as a visiting scholar (2010 – 2011). Since 2011, he became a research professor in SHAO.His current research interest is active galactic nuclei, and he has published over 40 SCI papers.
