I am a final-year Ph.D. candidate in Statistics at Purdue University, where I am fortunate to be coadvised by Prof. Qifan Song and Prof. Jean Honorio. I received an M.S. in Computer Science and Statistics during my Ph.D. study. I received an B.Sc. in Mathematics at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. I have interned at several industrial companies including Meta AI, Amazon Ads, and Sensetime Research.
My research interests include:
- Optimization Theory
- Bandit Algorithms
- Federated Learning
- High Dimensional Statistics
- Deep Learning Theory and Practice
I am actively building and maintaining an open-source Python library for X-armed bandit algorithms and benchmarks. Check out this repository.
Research collaborations from both industry and academia are highly welcomed. If you are interested in optimization/bandit/federated learning-related topics, feel free to reach out to me.
