About Me

I am a Research Scientist at Deepmind in London. Previously, I was a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Princeton University working with Prof. Mengdi Wang. I got my Ph.D. (2014-2019) in the Department of Statistics at Purdue University advised by Prof. Guang Cheng. I was a research intern at Deepmind in London mentored by Dr. Tor Lattimore and Prof. Csaba Szepesvári (Summer, 2019), and a research intern at Adobe Research in San Jose mentored by Dr. Zheng Wen (Summer, 2018).

My research interests focus on the statistical perspective of reinforcement learning and multi-armed bandits. Previously, I worked on statistical machine learning and tensor learning.
