I am a 1st-year PhD student in MIT EECS, advised by Prof. Suvrit Sra. Before MIT, I was an undergraduate student in Tsinghua University, major in Electronic Engineering and minor in Statistics.

From 2015 to 2018, I have been working at Institute of Information System, advised by Prof. Yuan Shen. In Fall 2016, I visited University of Wisconsin-Madison and worked at Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, advised by Prof. Dimitris Papailiopoulos. In Summer 2017, I was fortunate enough to be selected into Stanford UGVR program and worked as a research assistant in Information Systems Laboratory, advised by Prof. Tsachy Weissman.

My research interests lie in statistical machine learning and the related optimization problems, especially developing tools to handle challenges in modern data science.
