I will join the University of British Columbia in Vancouver as an Assistant Professor in February 2019. From 2017-2018, I am a CSoI (Center for Science of Information) postdoctoral fellow jointly with Stanford University and Princeton University. From 2015-2017, I was a postdoctoral researcher at Stanford University and Tel Aviv University, Israel. I obtained the Ph.D. degree at the University of California, San Diego in 2015. I attended the Academic Talent Program and obtained the B.E. degree at Tsinghua University, China in 2009.

My research focuses on two important aspects of information processing—practical low-complexity algorithms for communication and compression, and the theoretical limits on information flow over networks. More broadly, I am interested in developing tools in information theory, coding theory, communication theory, and graph theory for emerging practical challenges in the era of big data.
