About me

I'm an assistant professor in Yau Mathematical Sciences Center, Tsinghua University. I used to work in BIMSA as an assistant research fellow and in MPIM as a postdoc. I graduated from Tsinghua University in July 2019, under supervision of Eduard Looijenga .

I am interested in K3 surfaces, cubic fourfolds, hyper-Kahler manifolds, Calabi-Yau manifolds. Recently I worked on moduli and automorphisms of those objects.
