I am currently a tenure-track Assistant Professor in the Department of Statistics at the University of California Davis (starting from 2020). I am also a faculty in Graduate Group in Applied Mathematics(GGAM). From 2018-2020, I was a research associate at Duke University working with Hau-Tieng Wu. Before that, I got my PhD in statistics in 2018 from the University of Toronto (2014-2018), under the supervision of Jeremy Quastel.

My research lies in the intersection of applied probability, mathematical statistics and statistical learning theory with a focus on manifold learning and machine learning. Currenly, I mainly focus on the following topics: Random Matrix Theory and its statistical and algorithmic applications, non-stationary time series analysis, statistical analysis for algorithms (machine learning and manifold learning) for complex, high dimensional and noisy data. My research is currently supported by the National Science Foundation. Thanks, NSF!
