I am a fourth-year PhD student at Department of Computer Science, University of California, Los Angeles, advised by Prof. Quanquan Gu. Previously I obtained my B.Sc from Department of Mathematics Science, Tsinghua University. After that, I spent one year at Department of System and Information Engineering (Engineering Systems and Environment), University of Virginia.


My research interests are about decision-making problems (including bandits and reinforcement learning) and optimization for machine learning.


My name is pronounced as DAWN-raw JOH.
