I am an Assistant Professor in the School of Mathematics at Georgia Tech. My research interests include mathematical statistics, machine learning theory, and applied probability. Recently, I have been working on statistical inference of latent structures in networks.

I obtained my Ph.D. degree in 2018 from the Mathematics Department at MIT, under the supervision of Philippe Rigollet. From 2018 to 2019, I was a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Statistics and Data Science at Yale University, working with Yihong Wu.
