Hi! I am a final year Ph.D student in the theory group of Department of Computer Science at Princeton University. I am honored to be adviced by Prof. Ran Raz. I am broadly interested in theoretical computer science, mostly in complexity theory and quantum computation. Currently I am focusing on understanding the power of randomness and quantumness, in particular in space-bounded computations.

Before coming to Princeton, I spent the spring of 2016 in the University of Michigan working with Prof. Seth Pettie. I received my Bachelor's Degree from IIIS at Tsinghua University, where I was advised by Prof. Jian Li.

I served as a Teaching Assistant for the following courses:

COS 585 - Information Theory and Applications (Spring 2022)

COS 445 - Economics and Computation (Spring 2020)

COS 340 - Reasoning about Computation (Spring 2019)

Here is my CV and Research statement (updated Feb. 2023).
