I joined D.E. Shaw Group as a quant analyst in 2023/07! 

Previously, I was a Szegö Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics at Stanford University. My research interests lie in the theory and application of machine learning. I am especially interested in theoretically understanding the optimization behavior of deep neural networks, e.g. the implicit bias of optimization algorithms, as well as their connection with generalization. My mentor at Stanford is Professor Lexing Ying.

Before joining Stanford, I obtained my PhD from the Program in Applied and Computational Mathematics at Princeton University, under the supervision of Professor Weinan E. I received my bachelor's degree from the school of mathematical Science at Peking University. 

Here are my CV, Google Scholar and Linkedin
