About Me

I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Biostatistics at Harvard University, working with Prof. Tianxi Cai. In Fall 2023, I will start as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Statistics and Data Science at Carnegie Mellon University.

I recently graduated with a Ph.D. in Statistics at the University of Michigan, where I was fortunate to be advised by Prof. Ji Zhu. In 2016, I received a B.S. in Mathematics from Tsinghua University.

I am broadly interested in developing statistical methodology and theory for survival analysis, network analysis, and statistical machine learning, with applications to healthcare problems. My research is largely motivated by challenges arising from analyzing massive and complex datasets for interdisciplinary research.
