My CV and google citation page.
I am currently interested in studying the theoretical properties of high-dimensional statistical methods, particular under general models or low-assumption settings. My current research areas are focused on network analysis, nonconvex optimization, unsupervised learning, and high-dimensional multivariate analysis.
