I'm an L. E. Dickson Instructor at the University of Chicago, Department of Mathematics. I obtained my PhD in mathematics from Stanford University under the supervision of Prof. Richard Schoen. Before going to Stanford, I was an undergraduate math major at the National Taiwan University (NTU).

My research interests are partial differential equations, differential geometry and geometric measure theory.

I have collaborated with my colleagues to write notes on topics courses taught at Stanford.

- Topics in minimal submanifolds (Taught by Richard Schoen, Spring 2015)

Joint with C. Li and C. Mantoulidis.

- Harmonic analysis and isoperimetric inequalities (Taught by Yi Wang, Spring 2014)

Joint with O. Chodosh, N. Edelen, C. Henderson, P. Hintz, C. Mantoulidis.
