I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Statistics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Prior to this, I spent a year as a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Statistics at the University of Pennsylvania. I obtained my Ph.D. in Statistics from Harvard University in 2018, under the supervision of Jun S. Liu and Donald B. Rubin. Before that, I received my B.S. in Mathematics and Applied Mathematics with a minor in Economics from Peking University in 2013.
