About Me

I am a PhD candidate in the Manning College of Information and Computer Science (CICS) at UMass, Amherst, advised by Prof. Don Towsley. I also work closely with Prof. Mohammad Hajiesmaili. My current research focuses on multi-agent sequential decision making and distributed statistical inference under resource constraints.

I obtained my BSc degree from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at CUHK in 2019. During my undergraduate studies, I worked with Prof. John C.S. Lui on graphlet counting in the ANSR Lab. I also worked as a summer research intern with Dr. Konstantin Avrachenkov at INRIA in 2018.
