Hi! I am a third year PhD student in computer science at University of California, Berkeley, advised by Michael I. Jordan. I am also fortunate to work with Benjamin Recht and Jacob Steinhardt. I am affiliated with Berkeley AI Research (BAIR) and RISE Lab.
I am broadly interested in algorithms and machine learning foundations, with a focus on robustness guarantees and societal impact. My recent focuses have been on mechanism design, algorithmic optimal transport, and statistical questions in reinforcement learning.
Before Berkeley, I graduated with a Bachelor of Science triple majored in physics, computer science and mathematics from Hong Kong University of Science and Technology.
My research is generously supported by a Google Ph.D. Fellowship, and a Berkeley Graduate Fellowship.

In my spare time I enjoy working and thinking the societal impact side of my research. Outside work I like running, hiking, music, reading books. I had a great time participating in the Berkeley Half Marathon, and being a mezzo-soprano at UC Berkeley University Choir. I also enjoy playing the piano, writing classical Chinese poems from time to time, and being an amateur photographer mostly taking snaps of the lovely nature.
