Yumeng Zhang

I am a Stein fellow at Department of Statistics, Stanford University. I received my Ph.D. degree from Department of Statistics, University of California, Berkeley, advised by Allan Sly. Before that I got my bachelor degree in Mathematics from Yuanpei College, Peking University.

I am broadly interested in probability theory and its applications. In particular I have recently been working on problems in random constraints satisfaction problem, Markov chain mixing time and stochastic block model.
