I am currently a fourth year PhD student in Theory Group at Northwestern University, advised by Jason D. Hartline. Before that, I did my undergraduate studies in the ACM Honored Class at Shanghai Jiao Tong University. Here is my CV.

Research Interests

I have a broad interest in various aspects of theoretical computer science. My current research focuses on the algorithmic game theory.
