About me

I am currently an Alan Mekler postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Mathematics of Simon Fraser University , working with Zhaosong Lu and Tamon Stephen. Starting from September 1st, 2018, I will be an assistant professor at the Department of Mathematics of Hong Kong Baptist University.

I received my Ph.D. in 2015 from the Department of Systems Engineering and Engineering Management of the Chinese University of Hong Kong, under the supervision of Anthony Man-Cho So. Prior to that, I received my B.S. in Mathematics from the School for Gifted Young, University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) in 2011.

Research Interests

My research area is mainly in continuous optimization and its application to machine learning, signal processing, and data analysis. I am particularly interested in various analytic issues of optimization problems and algorithms arising from these applications.
