About me: I am a fourth-year PhD student in Statistics at Stanford University, advised by John Duchi. I am broadly interested in problems arising in modern data science and solving them using a combination of statistics, machine learning, and optimization. I am particularly interested in the geometry of non-convex / non-smooth functions in learning, signal processing, and general nonlinear programming.

I am glad to complement my research with industrial experiences. I spent a wonderful summer at Google Research in 2016 working with Li Zhang.

Prior to Stanford, I was an undergrad in mathematics at Peking University.
