I am a semester postdoctoral fellow in Institute for Computational and Experimental Research in Mathematics of Brown University in 2018. I am a post-doctor in La Trobe University, Melbourne and an adjunct associate lecturer in UNSW Sydney. Before that I was a one-year postdoctoral fellow in City University of Hong Kong in 2015-2016 and a half-year research assistant in The University of New South Wales, Australia (UNSW) in 2015. I obtained my PhD in UNSW under the supervision of Prof Ian Sloan, A/Prof Robert Womersley and Prof Michael Cowling and Master and Bachelor Degrees both from China Jiliang University. I am interested in computational mathematics, stochastic analysis and machine learning.
