I obtained my Ph.D. from MIT Media Lab in May, 2020, advised by Professor Alex 'Sandy' Pentland. I hold dual Master's degrees in Computer Science and Transportation Engineering from MIT and Bachelor's degrees in Transportation Engineering and Computational Mathematics from Beijing Jiaotong University.

I am looking for highly-motivated visiting scholars to work together on active learning problems on social networks in management applications. Please email me with your CV if you are interested in this topic.
