Hi, I am an assistant professor of computer science at Northeastern University, Boston, working at the intersection of machine learning theory and methods, algorithmic foundations, and graphs. Some of the topics I work on are:

I received my Ph.D. in computer science from Stanford, where I worked with the theoretical computer science and the statistical machine learning groups. I was a postdoc at UPenn for a brief stint. More information about me can be found in my CV.

I enjoy working on technically challenging problems, and strive for broader impacts by creating new knowledge and promoting education. I support accessible and reproducible research. We put our experiment code on GitHub. Here is a list of my recent activities.


Several selected papers (see also Google Scholar)



Current Ph.D. students and postdocs

Current Master's and undergraduate students

MS Alumni

Prospective students: I am actively looking for students to join the team. If you have ideas, I would love to chat. We host visiting students and scholars, and we are open to working with students who are already on campus. You may take a look at my recent papers and projects first before reaching out to me. I am particularly interested in students who are self-motivated, and have a strong background in mathematics and/or programming.
