I am a doctoral student in the Human Development and Family Studies program primary working with Sy-Miin Chow. My current research interests are focused on the topic of dynamical systems models, network analysis, and Bayesian approaches. I am also interested in general longitudinal data modeling and applying models in substantive areas such as school bullies and bipolar disorder, for better understanding laws behind human development.

I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Statistics and a Master of Education in Psychology from the Beijing Normal University in China. Before I came to HDFS, I majorly worked on cognitive diagnostic models and some education measurement issues.
