About me

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
