My hometown is Shanghai, China.

Besides academics, I am an amateur runner and chess player. My lichess rating is around top 10%. My profile photo was taken after I finished my first half marathon in May 2018.

I have been very successful in fighting with obesity. My body weight dropped from 100kg to 69kg in 6 months.

I like open-source software, especially the ones that respect user privacy. Some of my favourites are: Debian, Lineage OS, F-Droid, Signal, Zotero, Joplin.
