About Me

I am currently a doctoral student working with Prof. Yankai Cao at the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering, University of British Columbia, Canada. I obtained my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Control Science from Zhejiang University in 2018 and 2021 under the supervision of Prof. Dong Ni.

My research focuses on the global optimization of machine learning algorithms (such as clustering and decision tree) and their applications in process systems engineering (such as model predictive control and process monitoring).

In my spare time, I enjoy photography, traveling, aerobic sports (e.g. jogging, swimming, cycling, etc). Click Photography to see my albums on Instagram.
