I am currently a postdoc at the Shanghai Center for Mathematical Sciences under the supervision of Hehui Wu. I received my PhD from the University of California San Diego, where I am very fortunate to be advised by Jacques Verstraëte. Here is my CV.

My research interests lie primarily in extremal combinatorics, but I keep my brain open for any interesting math problems. My Erdős number is 2.

- Random Turán and counting results for general position sets over finite fields (with Yaobin Chen, Xizhi Liu, and Ji Zeng).

- Random Turán theorem for expansions of spanning subgraphs of tight trees.
*Submitted.*(arxiv)

- Turán theorems for even cycles in random hypergraph.
*Submitted.*(arxiv)
