I am a fourth year PhD candidate in the Department of Operations Research and Financial Engineering at Princeton University under the supervision of Professor Yuxin Chen and Professor Jianqing Fan. I have also worked with Professor Han Liu.

Prior to attending Princeton University, I received my bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering from Tsinghua University in 2015.

I am broadly interested in machine learning, high dimensional statistics, convex and nonconvex optimization as well as their applications to neuroscience.
