About me

I am an Associate Professor in Department of Statistics, at Rutgers University. I received my Ph.D. in Statistics at University of Pennsylvania in 2017 and I was fortunate to be advised by Professor T. Tony Cai. Before that, I received my bachelor degree in Mathematics from The Chinese University of Hong Kong.

I am broadly interested in high-dimensional statistical inference, causal inference, post-selection inference, semisupervised and transfer learning, and applications to genetics and health studies.

  • Uncertainty Quantification for High-dimensional Models.

  • Causal Inference with Instrumental Variables.

  • Machine Learning for Statistical Tasks.

  • Multi-source Learning.

  • Nonstandard Inference with Sampling Methods.
