I am currently a fourth year Ph.D. candidate with the Department of Computer Science, Rutgers University. Ping Li and Pranjal Awasthi are my co-advisors. I received the bachelor degree of Mathematics from Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU) in 2011, and then spent three wonderful years at the APEX Lab at SJTU. During 2013 and 2014, I was a visiting scholar at the Learning and Vision Research Group, National University of Singapore. After then, I was fortunate enough to work with Huan Xu on low-rank matrix recovery. My research interests mainly include machine learning, compressed sensing and convex/non-convex optimization.
