Research Description

I am a postdoc researcher at University of Wisconsin-Madison with Prof. Jelena Diakonikolas and Prof. Stephen J Wright. My research interests include optimization and machine learning. I obtained my Ph.D. degree at Tsinghua University in 2020 supervised by Prof. Yi Ma from University of California, Berkeley (who is an affiliate professor at Tsinghua-Berkeley Shenzhen Institute, Tsinghua University). I spent two wonderful years at Berkeley and finished my Ph.D. thesis there. The main focus of my current research is to propose and apply a general, powerful and concise framework [arXiv] for optimization problems in machine learning. The development based on this framework substantially improves complexity results in many well-known settings.
