About me

Greetings! I am a Postdoc at the department of Statistics and Operations Research at University of North Carolina (Chapel Hill). My mentor is Professor Amarjit Budhiraja.

Before I came to Chapel Hill, I finished my PhD at the Mathematics Department at the University of Washington (Seattle), advised by Professors Zhen-Qing Chen and Krzysztof Burdzy. I was born in Hong Kong, where I obtained my MPhil degree in Hong Kong University of Science and Technology under the supervision of Professor Shiu-Yuen Cheng, and also my Bsc degree in Chinese University of Hong Kong. I enjoy solving problems in natural sciences and reaching out to nature. I’m particularly interested in hiking, kayaking and figure skating.
