About me

Welcome! I am an assistant professor in the Department of Statistics at Rutgers University, New Brunswick.

My research primarily focuses on Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) techniques, general Monte Carlo methods, machine learning, and probability. Feel free to contact me if you would like to chat about interests we may share. My research is partially supported by NSF DMS-2210849. Thank you, NSF!

I received my Ph.D. in Mathematics (Ph.D. minor in Statistics) from Stanford University in August 2020, advised by Prof. Persi Diaconis. Prior to that, I received my B.S. with Honors in Mathematics from University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) in Jun 2015.

My Erdős number is 2 with multiplicity 2 :) ( [1] and [2] )


I am lucky to work with the following very talented students.

  • Yasa Syed (Statistics, fourth year Ph.D. student)

  • Wei Yuan (Statistics, third year Ph.D. student)
