I am an assistant professor in the Department of Statistics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison since late 2018. I am also a faculty affiliate of the Institute for Foundations of Data Science (IFDS), a multi-University TRIPODS Phase II Initiative. My research is in statistical machine learning with a particular focus on matrix/tensor data analysis. Other interests include statistical applications in genetics and neuroimaging.

Prior to UW-Madison, I was a postdoc in Computer Science (EECS Department) at UC Berkeley and a Simons Math+X postdoc at University of Pennsylvania. I received my PhD in Statistics from the University of Chicago and BS in Mathematics from Fudan University.
