About Me

I am a PhD student in the Department of Statistics and Data Science at Cornell University, advised by Professor Thorsten Joachims. I am supported by Bloomberg Data Science Ph.D. Fellowship.

Previously, I received my BSc (Honors) in Mathematics from Nanyang Technological University in the beautiful Singapore. During my undergraduate years, I spent a summer at University of California, Berkeley and a year at the Department of Statistics and Applied Probability, National University of Singapore. In Spring 2019, I worked as a Research Intern at the Machine Learning Group at Microsoft Research NYC, advised by Miro Dudik and Akshay Krishnamurthy. In Summer 2020, I worked as a Research Intern at Bloomberg AI.

I am interested in machine learning methods, algorithms, and systems. Specifically I am interested in learning from user behavioral data and implicit feedback in search engines, recommender systems and market platforms. My current interest lies in off-policy evaluation and learning in contextual bandits and reinforcement learning.
