About me: 

I am a PhD candidate in Statistics at University of California, Berkeley working with Michael I. Jordan. My current research interests lie in machine learning, optimization and high dimensional statistics. I completed a B.S. with honors in mathematics at the University of Hong Kong. I was born and grew up in Shanghai, China.
