I received my Bachelor's degree from University of Science and Technology of China in 2006, Master degree at Johns Hopkins University in 2009 and Ph. D at Northwestern University with S. Zelditch in 2012.  I was a postdoc at McGill University (2012-2013) and Maryland University Park College (2013-2015). Now I am an assistant professor at BICMR, Peking University.


 Recent research

For the last two years, I am interested in the following three topics,

1.        SYK model:

With Gang Tian and Dongyi Wei, we have three papers on the global distribution of eigenvalues of SYK model such as the global density of eigenvalues, the central limit theorem and the concentration of measure theorem. The SYK model a random matrix model which is a simple model of the black hole and it's very topical in physics recently, and it's also a quantum spin glass model. There are still many interesting open problems in this new emerging area, such as the behaviors of partition function (recall the Parisi formula in the spin glass) and the largest eigenvalue.


2.        Extreme spacing:

With D. Wei, we study the small gaps for the circular beta-ensemble and large gaps for CUE and GUE, in all cases, we derived the rescaling limits of extreme gaps based on the proof that the extreme gaps are asymptotic to the Poisson distribution after rescaling.


3.        Random waves:

With R. Adler, we get an explicit formula for the supremum of random spherical harmonics by Weyl's tube formula, where we proved that unexpectedly there is a lower bound of critical radius of the embedding/immersion of the sphere to higher dimensional sphere by the spherical harmonics, although the image become more and more twisted.
