I am currently a 5th year PhD student in the Department of Economics at the University of Pennsylvania. My research aims to develop novel machine learning algorithms for (sequential) data-driven decision making practices, particularly based on data collaboration. In addition, I also seek to provide safe and robust machine learning solutions. My work has been motivated by real-world business applications in healthcare operations, textual analytics, and dynamic pricing. I am advised by Professor Hamsa Bastani.

Previously, I graduated from Tsinghua University with a B.S. in Mathematics and a B.A. in Economics, and the University of Chicago with a M.S. in Statistics.

I am on the 2022-2023 job market.
