I am a second-year PhD student in the Department of IEOR at Columbia University. I am very fortunate to work with Garud Iyengar, Jay Sethuraman, and Hongseok Namkoong.

I am broadly interested in problems related to online marketplaces from an operational perspective.

I am also interested in making machine learning models more reliable and computationally efficient.

From 2019 to 2021, I spent two wonderful years at Georgia Tech ISyE as a graduate student studying statistics and mathematics while working with Siva Theja Maguluri, Debankur Mukherjee, and Michael Damron. From 2016 to 2019, I worked at a Fintech startup in China as one of its founding members untill it was listed on NASDAQ as QFIN. I was born in Nanjing in 1997, and raised up in Shanghai.
