Research interests: Computational Geometry, Algorithms, Data Structures
I am a fifth-year PhD candidate working with my advisor Prof. Ravi Janardan in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, University of Minnesota - Twin Cities. My research mainly focuses on some branches of theoretical computer science including computational geometry, algorithms, and data structures. A list of my publications can be found via the "Publications" link on the left side. My Erdos number is 3. Here is my CV.
I have a general interest in (both pure and applied) mathematics. My knowledge in mathematics mainly distributes in branches of algebra and topology (e.g., commutative algebra, homological algebra, algebraic topology, algebraic geometry, etc.) and branches strongly related to computer science (e.g., combinatorics, probability theory, graph theory, etc.). I'm currently taking a minor in math from the School of Mathematics, University of Minnesota.
I have a strong inclination in Chinese traditional culture (especially philosophy and literature). I like versification, calligraphy, I Ching, guqin, etc. I am a disciple of Laotze and his philosophical Taoism.
