About Me

I am currently a Stein Fellow in Statistics Department at Stanford University and I am excited to be joining Statistics Department at Carnegie Mellon University as an assistant professor in the fall of 2019. Before coming to Stanford, I spent five wonderful years as a Ph.D. student in Berkeley Statistics Department advised by Prof. Martin Wainwright and Prof. Adityanand Guntuboyina; I was also associated with the Berkeley Artificial Intelligence Research group (BAIR). Prior to that, I was an undergrad in School of Mathematical Sciences at Peking University in China.

My research interests include non-parametric statistics, high dimensional statistical inference, optimization, and statistical information theory. In particular, I have been working on problems with shape constraints, estimation/hypothesis testing in high dimensional setting and theoretical analysis of boosting methods.
