## About meI am an associate professor at BICMR (2018-). I got my PhD at Stony Brook in 2011, advised by Prof. Jason Starr. After that, I spent three years at Caltech as a Taussky-Todd instructor (2011-2014), one semester visiting Bonn (Fall 2014), then held a CNRS position for about 3 years (2015.1-2018.3) in Grenoble, France. I moved back to China in March 2018. ## ResearchI do research in algebraic geometry. Here is a brief description of some of my works (2016-2020). ## Selected Publications(with Lie Fu and Charles Vial) Motivic hyper-Kaehler resolution conjecture, I: generalized Kummer varieties. Geom. Topol. 23 (2019), no. 1, 427–492. Hasse principle for three classes of varieties over global function fields. Duke Math. J. 166 (2017), no. 17, 3349–3424. Weak approximation for cubic hypersurfaces. Duke Math. J. 164 (2015), no. 7, 1401–1435 Symplectic geometry of rationally connected threefolds. Duke Math. J. 161 (2012), no. 5, 803–843.
