I am a J.J. Sylvester Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics, Johns Hopkins University. I graduated with my Ph.D. from the University of Illinois at Chicago under Professors Lawrence Ein and Kevin Tucker. Before that, I grew up and studied in China. My undergraduate advisor is Shiu-Chun Wong at Zhejiang University.


Spring 2019 teaching:
Math 619, Lie Groups and Lie Algebras
Math 644, Algebraic Geometry II


I am interested in algebraic geometry with two directions. My first line of research focuses on the geometry of the Hilbert scheme of points on singular curves and surfaces. I aim to understand invariants and singularities of these Hilbert schemes of points. I am also interested in various algebro-geometric problems over fields of positive characteristics, specifically linear systems on surfaces.
