Biography

I am a statistics Ph.D. candidate at the University of Southern California’s Marshall School of Business department of Data Sciences and Operations. My advisors are Prof. Yingying Fan and Prof. Jinchi Lv. In the fall, I will be joining the Regulation, Evaluation, and Governance Lab at Stanford Law School as a Postdoctoral Researcher.

My research focuses on developing new statistical methodologies for high-dimensional data and expanding our theoretical understanding of commonly-used machine learning methods in high-dimensional settings. I am particularly interested in developing non-parametric methods with rigorous statistical guarantees for causal inference problems.
