Short bio

I received my Ph.D. degree in operations research from Columbia University in 2006 under Prof. Donald Goldfarb. Before joining Alibaba US in 2019, I was an Applied Math Professor in the Department of Mathematics, University of California, Los Angeles. During 2006–2013, I was with the Department of Computational and Applied Mathematics at Rice University. I won the NSF CAREER award in 2008, an Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellowship in 2009, a Morningside Gold Medal in 2016, and a Damo Award in 2021. I have had six papers co-authored with my students and collaborators that received the best paper kind of awards. Since 2018 I have been among the top 1% cited researchers by Clarivate Analytics.

My research interests include computational optimization and its applications in signal processing, machine learning, and other data science problems.
