My CV and google citation page.
I have general research interests in statistics, machine learning, and mathematical signal processing. Particularly, I am interested in proposing optimization and spectral methods for data analysis, and study their statistical efficiency and adaptivity to data structure, in particular under low-assumption or assumptionless frameworks
I am now interested and have been actively working in the following topics:
- Nonparametric statistics
- High-dimensional statistics
- Network statistical analysis
- Machine learning theory
- mathematical signal processing
- Convex and nonconvex optimization
