My advisors are Andrew Chi-Chih Yao and Pingzhong Tang.

I was:
a member of a learning group on Communication Complexity, supervised by Andrew Chi-Chih Yao (Mar. 2010 - May. 2010)
in CUHK Summer Research Placement Programme for Mainland and Taiwan Students (Jun. 2012 - Aug. 2012)
a visiting student at Aarhus University, supervised by Peter Bro Miltersen (Aug. 2015 - Nov. 2015)

I won the Outstanding PhD Graduate Award in 2016.

I also won the Yao Award in 2010.

Research Interests

My research interests lie on the interface of computer science and economic theory (aka. computational economics). In particular, my research focuses on Multi-Agent System, Electronic Commerce, Game Theory, Mechanism Design and Auction.
