I am currently working at the Department of Mathematics at the University of Science and Technology of China. Before that, I was a postdoc with the Humboldt Fellowship in the group of Prof. Dr. Harald Garcke at the Department of Mathematics, University of Regensburg, Germany. I received my Ph.D. degree from the Department of Mathematics at National University of Singapore in 2017, under the supervision of Prof. Weizhu Bao and Prof. Weiqing Ren.
