About Me

I am currently a PHD student in the Computer Science Department of the University of Texas at Austin, fortunately advised by Professor David Zuckerman. In spring 2017, I was visiting the Simons institute for the Theory of Computing at Berkeley to attend the workshop about Pseudorandomness. I received my B.S. from the Institute for Interdisciplinary Information Science in Tsinghua University, under the supervision of Professor Andrew Yao.

I am interested in randomized algorithms and pseudorandomness. Specifically, sublinear algorithms, approximation algorithms, the use of randomness in computation, and explicit constructions of hash functions and pseudorandom generators.

Here is my CV and research statement. I am going to graduate in the summer of 2018 and seeking for a postdoctoral positions in academia or a researcher position in industrial research lab.
