I am a second-year PhD student in Computer Science at Harvard University, where I am very fortunate to be advised by Yiling Chen. I received my bachelor’s degree in EECS at Peking University. I am exploring theoretical computer science and machine learning. My current research interest lies in the intersection between economics and computation, particularly on algorithmic game theory.
