Hi! I'm a second-year PhD student in the Theory Group of Computer Science Department at Princeton University, where I'm extremely fortunate to be advised by Robert Tarjan.
Previously, I obtained my M.S. degree from Institute for Interdisciplinary Information Sciences, Tsinghua University. I was also a research intern at Microsoft Research (Redmond).
I'm broadly interested in Algorithms, Data Structures, Combinatorics, and Computational Complexity.
