Hi! I'm a third 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.
My main research interests lie in Algorithm Design and Fine-Grained Complexity.
I'm very generously supported by a 2017-18 Gordon Y.S. Wu Fellowship. I was also a research intern at Microsoft Research (Redmond) in the winter of 2016-17.
