About Me

I am an Assistant Professor of Econometrics and Statistics at the University of Chicago, Booth School of Business.
I received the Ph.D. in Statistics from Harvard University under the supervision of Edo Airoldi, David Parkes and Don Rubin in 2016, and the MS in Computer Science (from Harvard) under the supervision of David Parkes in 2011.

My research is split in two areas. One area is causal inference in complex systems, such as networks, especially through model-free randomization methods. This is also known as randomization inference. I am also working on statistical machine learning, particularly on large-scale statistical inference through stochastic gradient descent (SGD) with stable implicit updates.
