I am a Ph.D Candidate in Department of Statistics at University of MichiganMy advisor is Prof. Susan A. MurphyCurrently I am visiting Statistics Department at Harvard University.  As a member of Prof. Murphy's Statistical Reinforcement Learning Lab, my current research is on developing new experimental design and data analysis methods for developing high-quality mobile interventions (e.g. Just-in-Time Adaptive Interventions) in mobile health using methods from Reinforcement Learning. My initial manuscript in this area is in the development of so-called micro randomized trials. I completed my undergraduate study in statistics at Sun Yat-Sen University (Zhongshan University).
