About me

I am a third-year PhD student working under Prof. Santiago Segarra in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Rice University. My current research interests focus on graph signal processing, graph neural networks, network theory, and machine learning. I received my B.S. and M.S. degrees in Electrical Engineering from Beihang University, Beijing, China.
