About me

I am a C.-C. Hsiung Visiting Assistant Professor at Lehigh Univeristy. Previously I was a Courant Instructor at the Department of Mathematics at Courant Institute. I have earned a PhD in mathematics from Princeton University. My research interests lie in the field of geometric analysis and its applocations to complex, differential, and algebraic geometry. I am interested in a range of subjects including examples of non-Kähler manifolds, canonical metrics and topological properties on complex manifolds, geometric structures with a large group of symmetries, generalized Kähler structures. Another thread of my research concerns toric topology — the topic at the intersection of combinatorics, convex geometry and algebraic topology. I have conducted a number of projects in the fileds of Information Retrieval and Machine Learning as a memeber of Yandex research group.
