About me

I am an assistant professor at Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, Indiana State University, having obtained my PhD in Mathematics under the supervision of Professor Wenzhi Luo at Ohio State University, and BS/MS in Mathematics at Shandong University, China, thanks for many Professorsí spiritual mentorship and support.

I have been a learner, teacher and researcher at many different institutions, and have studied and worked from China to US, from the Midwest to the East Coast, from Ohio State to ECSU, then Princeton (mentored by Professor Peter Sarnak), Yale, UNH and UConn before joining ISU. Working and studying through these institutions, I have always met many fabulous friends and marvelous mentors, needless to say, I learn so much from them. I have also taught a variety of courses in math and statistics. Teaching and learning mathematics is always an enjoyable and rewarding experience for me.

My research background is in Number Theory, Graph Theory and their applications on Cryptography and Data Analysis. I am also interested in the fascinating relations between number theory and physics through L-functions and trace formulae, which bridge over various mathematical realms, such as arithmetic, analysis and geometry.

Besides mathematics, I enjoy running, swimming, staying with my family, and learning from everyone else.
