about me

Life is short. I learn statistics.


I am currently (2011.1-now) an assistant professor at School of Mathametical Sciences, Peking University, P.R. China.

Prior to this (2009.1-2011.1) I was a postdoc at Statistics Department, UC Berkeley.

I graduated from Peking University and got my Ph.D degree in Jan, 2009.


Stonger. Keep on learning to improve myself continuously.

Stonger. Educate students to make them stronger.

Stonger. Collaberate with people to make the community stronger.


My vision on Statistics.

Statistics is intelligence.

Statistics is the heart of data science.

Statistics finds knowledge.

Statistics finds Causality.

Statistics finds Peace.
