About me

I am currently a 6th-year Ph.D. student in Applied Mathematics at UC Davis advised by Professor Qinglan Xia. Prior to that, I received B.S. in Mathematics and Applied Mathematics (Elite Students) from Chu Kochen Honors College, Zhejiang University, and did my undergraduate thesis with Professor Zhi (George) Lin.

I am looking for postdoc positions starting fall 2020!

My CV can be found here.
