I am an assistant professor in the Computer Science Department of University of Illinois at Chicago, where I am part of the Theory Group.
Prior to joining UIC, I was at UC Berkeley Simons Institute and Microsoft Research. I recieved my PhD in 2016 from Columbia University, where I was fortunate to be advised by Xi Chen. I recieved my MS and BE from Shanghai Jiao Tong University.
My research is in theoretical computer science. More specifically, I work in parallel algorithms, sublinear algorithms and graph algorithms.
