picI am a fourth year Ph.D student in Computer Science at Stanford University, co-advised by Professor Peter Bailis and Philip Levis. I am affiliated with the Stanford DAWN project. I am broadly interested in efficient and effective data analytics for large-scale, machine generated data. Recently I have been interested in approximate nearest neighbour methods, with applications in accelerating kernel summations and large-scale earthquake detection.

I graduated from Caltech in 2015 with a B.S. in Computer Science. Before that, I attended Nanjing Foreign Language School in Nanjing, China.
