About Me
I am a Byrne research post-doctoral assistant professor in the Department of Mathematics at University of Michigan, working with Professor Erhan Bayraktar. Before coming to Ann Arbor, I was a postdoctoral research associate in the Division of Applied Mathematics at Brown University, mentored by Professor Paul Dupuis. In 2016, I completed my Ph.D. in the Department of Statistics and Operations ResearchUNC at Chapel Hill, under the supervision of Professor Amarjit Budhiraja. Before that, I got my B.S. degree from the School of Mathematical Sciences (Yuanpei Program)Peking University in 2012.

In 2017 Fall semester I helped organize the Brown Probability Seminar.

My research interests lie in probability and its applications. In particular, I am interested in weakly interacting particle systems, moderate and large deviations (with applications in rare events simulation), random graphs, uncertainty quantification, queuing theory, and mean-field games.
