Postdoctoral Researcher, Electrical Engineering Department, Princeton University, Princeton, NJ.

I joined professor Mung Chiang’s (currently at Purdue University) and professor Yuxin Chen’s (Princeton University) research groups as a postdoctoral research associate. At Princeton University, I worked on distributed and real time optimization and machine learning over heterogeneous computational nodes.

PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering (Minor Degree in Applied Mathematics), Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, 2017.

I revived my PhD degree from the school of electrical and computer engineering at Cornell University  in 2017 under the supervision of professor Qing Zhao.

My dissertation focused on Sequential Inference and Decision Making, Online Learning and Multi Armed Bandit problems. I have worked on time-varying models, risk-averse measures, hierarchical observations, and non-parametric composite hypotheses .

Master in Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of California, Davis, CA, 2013.
