About Me

I received a B.S. degree in mathematics summa cum laude from Peking University (PKU), in 2020. My undergraduate supervisor is Prof. Ruo Li.
My graduate supervisor is Prof. Thomas Yizhao Hou. I am also co-advised by Prof. Houman Owhadi and Prof. Andrew Stuart.
I matriculate remotely in Caltech and join BICMR as a research assistant hosted by Prof. Ruo Li, Prof. Zhennan Zhou, and Prof. Zhenfu Wang for the Academic year 2020.


My research interests broadly lie in

  • Numerical Analysis

  • Partial Differential Equation

  • Applied Probability

Actively looking for discussions and possible collaborations on interesting topics.
