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;
- Machine learning applications to medical data.
I'm graduating in Spring 2018 and will join Jump Trading as a quantitative researcher.
