I am currently a second-year M.Phil. student at the Department of Systems Engineering and Engineering Management, The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK), supervised by Prof. Jeffrey Xu Yu. Previously, I received the B. Eng. from Computer Science at Zhejiang University in 2019.

My research interests include algorithms with theoretical guarantees and using ML/DL to cope with classic data management problems
