I am a second year Electrical Engineering PhD student at Stanford University supported by a 3-year Stanford Graduate Fellowhip (SGF). My research mainly focuses on information theory, statistics and theoretical machine learning and I am fortunate to be advised by Ayfer Özgür.

I obtained a master degree in Electrical Engineering from National Taiwan University in Jan 2019. Prior to that, I received a bachelor degree in Electric Engineering and a (dual) bachelor degree in Mathematics from the same institute in June, 2016.

Research Interest

I am broadly interested in information-theoretic and algorithmic aspects of data science, and my current interest focuses on federated learning. My research adopts tools mainly from information theory, theoretical machine learning and high-dimensional and nonparametric statistics.
