I have been working as a postdoctoral fellow in the Weizmann Institute of Science since November 2017, hosted by Prof. Robert Krauthgamer. I have completed my PhD in August 2017 under the supervision of Dr. Hubert Chan at The University of Hong Kong. I obtained my BEng degree from Shandong University in 2013.

I am currently interested in algorithms in massive data sets, approximation algorithms and online optimization.
