I am an assistant professor at Institute of Information Engineering, Chinese Academy of Sciences. I joined CAS in July 2013.

I earned my Ph.D. in Probability and Statistics from Peking University in 2013, supervised by Prof. Hang Li and Prof. Shuyuan He. Before that, I received my B.S. in Mathematics from Zhejiang University in 2008. Here is my CV.

My research interests include machine learning, data mining, and information retrieval.
