About Me

I'm currently an Assistant Professor/Courant Instructor at Courant Insitute of Mathematical Sciences (CIMS) and the Center for Data Science.

I received Ph.D. degree in 2017 at Department of Mathematics, University of California, Davis,
under the supervision of Prof. Thomas Strohmer. Here is my CV and Google Scholar Page.
