I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Statistics and Data Science at Carnegie Mellon University. Prior to joining CMU in 2023,  I was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Biostatistics at Harvard University, working with Tianxi Cai.


  • 2022: Ph.D. in Statistics from the University of Michigan, where I was fortunate to be advised by Ji Zhu
  • 2016: B.S. in Mathematics from Tsinghua University


I am broadly interested in developing statistical methodology and theory for network analysis, machine learning, and survival analysis with applications to health and social sciences. My research is largely motivated by challenges arising from analyzing massive and complex datasets for interdisciplinary research.
