I'm a 4th year PhD student at the University of Texas at Austin, Department of Statistics and Data Sciences. I am advised by Prof. Purnamrita Sarkar. Before coming to UT, I completed B.S. and M.S. in Peking University working with Prof. Yuan Yao.
I work on statistical machine learning problems, some of my research interest are
- Inference on networks, esp. Stochastic Block Models
- Clustering mixture models
- Semidefinite programming
- Non-convex optimization
- Machine learning applications to medical data
