About me

I received my B.S. degree in computer science from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2017. I was priviledged to work with Professor Dan Roth, we finished a undergraduate thesis about temporal reasoning. In Aug 2017, I started my MS in CS in UW-Madison, where I am honored to work with Professor Po-Ling Loh.


My main research interests are in learning theory, including online learning and adversarial perturbations. I also have a strong interests in theoretical computer science, metric embedding, and mixed integer optimization.
