I am a 1st year graduate student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison broadly interested in theoretical computer science and optimization theory. I am now working with Dr. Paris Koutris on the intersection between theory and database systems.

I just graduated from Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) with my bachelor's degree in computer science, and I was an exchange student at the David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science at the University of Waterloo in Winter 2017. My undergraduate advisor is Dr. Yixin Cao, and I am fortunate to work with him on algorithmic graph theory and parameterized algorithms for three years.
