I am a 4th-year graduate student in the Department of Mathematics at University of Washington. My advisor is Ioana Dumitriu. Before that I got my bachelor degree in Mathematics and Applied Mathematics from Shanghai Jiao Tong University.

I am interested in probability theory and combinatorics. I am working on:

- Eigenvalue statistics of random matrices
- Graph limits
- Random graphs and hypergraphs

**Preprints**

1. A graphon approach to limiting spectral distributions of Wigner-type matrices

2. Sparse general Wigner-type matrices: local law and eigenvector delocalization, with Ioana Dumitriu

3. Exact recovery in the hypergraph stochastic block model: a spectral algorithm, with Sam Cole
