I am a fourth-year Ph.D. student in the Department of Mathematics, University of Wisconsin-Madison. My advisor is Qin Li.

Starting Fall 2022, I will join UC Berkeley as Morrey visiting assistant professor in the Department of Mathematics.

Research interest:

I work on applied and computational mathematics. More specifically, I use PDE analysis tools for analyzing machine learning algorithms, such as Bayesian sampling and over-parameterized neural networks. The PDE tools, including gradient flow equation, and mean-field analysis, are helpful in formulating the machine (deep) learning algorithms into certain mathematical descriptions that are easier to handle. This, in return, provides convergence analysis to the algorithms.
