About me

I obtained my PhD Degree at IIIS, Tsinghua University. 2011 - 2016
I obtained my Bachelor Degree at Yao Class of IIIS, Tsinghua University. 2007 - 2011
My advisors are Andrew Chi-Chih Yao and Pingzhong Tang.

I was:
a member of a learning group on Communication Complexity, supervised by Andrew Chi-Chih Yao (Mar. 2010 - May. 2010)
in CUHK Summer Research Placement Programme for Mainland and Taiwan Students (Jun. 2012 - Aug. 2012)
a visiting student at Aarhus Univeristy, supervised by Peter Bro Miltersen (Aug. 2015 - Nov. 2015)

I won the Outstanding PhD Graduate Award in 2016.

I also won the Yao Award in 2010.
