About

Hailing from China, I received my Ph.D. degree in Operations Research from MIT in 2022 and my bachelor's degree in Physics and Applied Math from Stanford in 2017. After graduation, I worked as a machine learning scientist at Meta (Facebook) and Helm.ai (a startup in autonomous driving).

 

Outside work, I enjoy running, hiking, reading, learning languages, and playing with my two lovely cats, Sushi and Uni.

 

Fun fact: I learned to play Gu-zheng (Chinese zither) in college and founded the Mass Ave Chinese Music Ensemble at MIT.
