Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish.

I am currently a Ph.D. candidate in the transportation program at MIT, supervised by Prof. Jinhua Zhao and Prof. Haris Koutsopoulos. I completed my dual Master's degree in Transportation and Computer Science at MIT in 2020. Before joining MIT, I got a B.E. degree from Department of Civil Engineering, Tsinghua University in Beijing, advised by Prof. Ruimin Li.

My main research interests are data-driven transportation modeling, demand modeling, and applied machine learning. My current research focuses on rail disruption management, sponsored by Chicago Transit Authority (CTA).
