Hello! I'm a faculty member in Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Jiangsu Normal University (China).

I am broadly interested in (discrete) probability theory, including interacting particle systems, random matrices and random graphs. Recently I also get interested in applications to machine learning and economics. My research is largely problem-driven.

I got my PhD in Mathematics from Duke University. My advisor is Prof. Rick Durrett. Before that I obtained my bachelor's degree in mathematics from University of Science and Technology of China.
