I am a Ph.D candidate in statistics at University of Toronto, advised by Daniel M. Roy and Jeffrey S. Rosenthal.

Before coming to Toronto, I got my B.Eng from Tsinghua University, D.Eng from Chinese Academy of Sciences, both in electrical engineering, and later a M.Sc. in applied mathematics from Queen's University in Kingston, advised by Fady Alajaji and Glen Takahara.

I am grateful to be partly supported by Alexander Graham Bell Canada Graduate Scholarship (CGS D).
