My story

I grew up in Beijing, China where I commuted 1.5 hours to and from school on a daily basis. When I was 13, I moved to a town with 5,000 population in Massachusetts and spent 4 years studying there. Contrastingly, I then went to **the greatest college, in the greatest university, in the greatest city in the world** (self-proclaimed).
Now I do machine learning at CMU.


  • Education for the Body: I play tennis when it’s warm and I ski when it’s cold.

  • Education for the Soul: I have an eclectic playlist consisting of K-Pop, Classical, Rock, and Latino.

  • Achieving true Wisdom: Stats at CMU

  • Training in Dialectic: usually happens with beers and wines.
