About Me

I am currently a PhD candidate in Department of Mathematics & Statistics at Boston University. I am working under the supervision of Dr. Luis Carvalho with research focusing on network inference and community detection. My research interests include Bayesian statistics, high dimensional computational statistics and machine learning.

Before joining Boston University in Fall 2010, I obtained my bachelor's degrees in Mathematics from Zhejiang University, China.
