I am currently a Postdoctoral Fellow at Simons Center for Computational Physical Chemistry (SCCPC) at New York University. Prior to this, I was a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics at Michigan State University, working with Prof. Guowei Wei. I hold a Bachelor’s Degree from Xi’an Jiaotong University in Mathematics and Applied Mathematics, and an Applied Mathematics Ph.D. from Michigan State University.

My previous research mainly focused on developing mathematical tools for descriptive and predictive modeling of biomolecules and their interactions. Currently, my interests include computational topology and graphs, mathematical modeling of infectious diseases, RNA design, single-cell RNA sequencing, drug discovery, machine learning, and genomics analysis.
