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 was in the Institute for Advanced Study for the academic year 2016-2017. I was visiting the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics for the summer of 2015 (June to July), the summer of 2016 (June to August), and the summer of 2017 (June to August).

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

  2. Multiparameter quantum Schur duality of type B, to appear in Proc. AMS arXiv:1609.01766.
    (joint with Hideya Watanabe and Weiqiang Wang)

  3. Categorification of quantum symmetric pairs I, to appear in Quantum Topology arXiv:1605.03780v2.
