I obtained the Ph.D. degree in electrical and computer engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in December 2016. Before that, I obtained the B.S. degree from Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications in 2007, and the M.S. degree from Tsinghua University in 2010, both in electrical engineering. I'm interested in statistical inference and learning, information theory, and signal processing and coding for communications.
For my PhD, I had the chance to study the fundamental limits of statistical learning algorithms, distributed estimation, and distributed function computation, using tools from information theory. I have been fortunate to work under the guidance of Prof. Maxim Raginsky. See this page for an introduction of my PhD work.
I also have some experience in wireless communication receiver design and FPGA implementation, iterative detection and decoding algorithms, and message passing reconstruction for group testing. Most of those works were done with Prof. Kewu Peng or with Peter Kairouz.
