I am a Postdoctoral Fellow of Applied Mathematics and Statistics at Johns Hopkins University. My advisors are Mauro Maggioni and Fei Lu.

Previously, I was a PhD student at the University of Washington, advised by Hong Qian.

Research Interests

My research interests are applications of dynamical systems and stochastic processes. Particularly, I am interested in applied mathematics underlying the stochastic dynamics of data as a discrete-state, discrete-time Markov process.


In Fall 2018: I am teaching Dynamical Systems (EN 553.391). Here is the syllabus and schedule.

In Spring 2019: I am teaching Applied Math for Engineers (EN 560.601). Here is the syllabus.
