About Me

I am a Hermann-Weyl-Instructor (postdoc) at ETH Zurich. I am interested in homogeneous dynamics and applications to number theory. I am working with Prof. Manfred Einsiedler.

I received Ph.D. in mathematics in the Ohio State University under the supervision of Prof. Nimish Shah in May 2019. I received B.A. in mathematics in Peking University in July 2013.

Here is my CV.
