My name is Change,Yin-Chih Tsai. I like astronomy and computer graphic. My interest on astronomy started from the return of Halley´s Comet at 1986, I studied and learned star gazing by myself from that time. I joined astronomical club and became the leader when I was an university student. In graduated school, my research was about the evolution in galaxies. I got my Master´s degree in astronomy at 1995 from Graduate Institute of Astronomy, National Central University, Taiwan. I worked for website companies as a planner, programmer, designer and web master from 1998 to 2003. After that, I worked for astronomy related company like astronomical museum, telescopes company and research centers. Now I work for Institute of Astronomy and Astrophysics, Academia Sinica (ASIAA) in Taiwan. I am an art editor, editing the quarterly and make poster for meetings & events. I also work like an illustrator, making astrophysical illustrations for press release, educational material and journals. I use 3ds max and Photoshop as my main tools to create illustrations.
