Hello! I am a final year PhD student at Boston University, advised by Prof. Yannis Paschalidis and Prof. Ashok Cutkosky.

I am broadly interested in the theoretical aspects of machine learning, optimization and control theory. Specifically, I work on adaptive online learning, i.e., designing online decision making algorithms that optimally exploit problem structures.

Recently I am thinking about how to systematically simplify the design and verification of online learning algorithms, from a continuous-time perspective. I am looking for a postdoc position starting in Fall 2023.

Prior to BU, I studied mechanical engineering at Tsinghua University.
