About Me

I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Data Science Institute, Columbia University, mentored by Shipra Agrawal. I completed my Ph.D. in Computer Science at Washington University in St. Louis, where I was fortunate to be advised by Chien-Ju Ho. I received my bachelor degree from Tianjin University, China.

My research spans areas of machine learning, algorithmic economics, and behavioral (social) sciences. I am interested in developing desired algorithms for decision-making schemes in dynamic, uncertain, and human-centric economic systems. My research interests include sequential decision-making (with uncertainty), reinforcement learning, information design, and human-AI interaction.

Updates: I will be joining as an assistant professor in Department of Decisions, Operations and Technology of the Chinese University of Hong Kong in the 2024 Fall.
