I am currently a second-year Ph.D. student at the Department of Statistics, UW-Madison and I am fortunate to be advised by Professor Garvesh Raskutti. I grew up in a beautiful city in eastern China, Jinhua, Zhejiang. After graduating from Jilin University located in Changchun, China with a BS in mathematics in Spring 2013, I moved to the lovely town of Gainesville in Florida and received a MS in mathematics from the University of Florida in Spring 2015.

My CV and resume are available upon request. Welcome to follow me on Linkedin and Github


My current research interests broadly include high-dimensional statistical inference,large-scale machine learning and optimization. I am also interested in statistical applications to finance, social network and biology.

Details of my current and past work are under construction.
