Siyao Xu studies the fundamental physics of magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) turbulence, turbulent dynamo, and particle transport in MHD turbulence. The theoretical findings are applied to studying diverse astrophysical problems, including cosmic rays, (first) star formation, magnetic reconnection, and particle acceleration in high-energy astrophysical environments.
