I am a Ph.D. student in Statistics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, under the supervision of Professor Karl Rohe and Professor Sunduz Keles. Prior to entering current program, I completed my B.S. in Mathematics at Zhejiang University in July 2016, where I studied with Professor Kangsheng Liu and Professor Zhiyi Tan.

I grew up in the lovely city of Fuzhou. I study networks and genomics, among many things. Follow me on Instagram to see more!



Broadly, I am interested in network analysis and computational genomics.

In particular, my initial training project focused on key palyers identification in (social) networks. Then, I started studying community detection (clustering) and inference on networks. Recently, learning (genes/proteins) regulatory networks has become one of my favorite topics as well.
