About me: I am a
fourthyear 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 nonconvex / nonsmooth
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.
