Welcome to my homepage!

I am a fifth-year doctoral candidate in the Statistics and Data Science Department at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. I will be joining the Department of IT, Analytics, and Operations (ITAO) at the Mendoza College of Business of the University of Notre Dame as an assistant professor in Fall 2022. My advisor is Linda Zhao. I am fortunate to collaborate with wonderful people and researchers from statistics, economics, and finance.

Statistical theory powers data science. My research lies in the intersection of statistical learning and data-driven decision making. A significant thrust of my research is on network analysis, model selection, and post-selection inference. In addition, by constructing interfirm networks, such as dynamic equity investment networks of all 40 million firms in China (EquiNet), I study the network effect on firms' behaviors and decision-making.

I also enjoy teaching a modern data mining course at different levels, from undergraduates, graduates and MBAs, to executive education.
