I graduated from the University of Virginia, under the supervition of Prof. Weiqiang Wang. I am currently (2015-) a Brin Postdoctoral Fellow in the University of Maryland, College Park. My mentor is Prof. Xuhua He. I will be in the Institute for Advanced Study for the academic year 2016-2017. I am also visiting the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics for the summer of 2015 (June to July) and the summer of 2016 (June to August).

Here is a picture of me in the University of Virginia.

I am interested in the representation theory of Lie algebras, Lie superalgebras, quantum groups, and their connections to geometry and categorification. Here is my CV
