I am currently a third year doctorate student and Ph.D. Candidate in physics at Harvard University. My work spans a heterogeneous subset of neutrino physics, from neutrino oscillations and BSM phenomenology to machine learning and hardware experiments. I work with Professor Carlos A. Argüelles-Delgado, and am a member of the IceCube Collaboration. I recently finished a series of neutrino oscillation-related sensitivity analysis as well as some machine learning reconstruction algortihems, and am now focusing on charm hadron production in neutrino-neuclus DIS.

I engage in fun and fruitful conversations in a mandarin seminar with many other young physicists in the larger Boston Area that my friends and I started: I encourage you to check it out here. I have always held the belief that we all need an environment where we can talk about work and life in our mother tongues, and for us physicists, this is a seminar that fosters a sense of belonging and mutual support. To my surprise, many international friedns who speak mandarin as a second or third language have also joined us to make it a more inclusive and diverse space.

In my free time I enjoy camping, hiking, rock climbing and strength training. I am also a huge fan of anime, ACG arts, specifically Genshin Impact and Honkai Starrail. I have two very adorable cats, whose photos might randomly appear on my website in the short future, so make sure to check back here!
