About Me

I am currently a Postdoctoral Associate in the Laboratory for Information & Decision Systems (LIDS) at MIT, working with Asuman Ozdaglar.

I got my Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at University of California, Berkeley, where I was advised by Michael I. Jordan; I was also associated with the Berkeley Artificial Intelligence Research group (BAIR) and RISELab. Prior to that, I got a B.S. in Mathematics from Nanjing University, a M.S. in Pure Mathematics and Statistics from University of Cambridge and a M.S. in Operations Research from University of California, Berkeley.

My research interests lie broadly in the span of optimization, game theory and machine learning. In particular, I have been developing methods appropriate for equilibrium computation with structured model and data, and understanding the efficiency in social learning. I am also interested in problems arising from optimal transport and large-scale text analytics.

Update: I will join Columbia University as an assistant professor in the Department of Industrial Engineering and Operations Research, starting Summer 2024!
