About me

Currently, I am a postdoctoral researcher in Department of Management Science and Engineering (MS&E) at Stanford University, hosted by Prof. Jose Blanchet. I also work closely with Prof. Yinyu Ye. Previously, I received my Ph.D. degree in Department of Systems Engineering and Engineering Management from the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) in 2021, where I was fortunate to be advised by Prof. Anthony Man-Cho So. From Aug 2020 to Mar 2021, I worked with Prof. Justin Solomon as a visiting Ph.D student in the Geometric Data Processing Group at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Prior to joining CUHK, I obtained my bachelor degree in Statistics from Chongqing University.

Update: Starting from July 2024, I will be an assistant professor at the University of British Columbia, Sauder School of Business.
