I am a Boas Assistant Professor at Northwestern University. Before coming to Evanston, I was a postdoc fellow in the Center of Mathematical Sciences and Applications at Harvard University for one year and in Mathematical Sciences Research Institute for one semester. I received my Ph.D. in mathematics from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2014. My advisors were Marius Junge and Renming Song. I got my B.S. in (Mathematical) Statistics from Beijing Normal University and then spent one year at Peking University as a graduate student. I can be reached at qzeng.math AT gmail.com.
Research InterestsProbability theory, functional analysis, operator algebras, mathematical physics
