I have been pursuing my Ph.D. degree in statistics at University of Connecticut since Fall 2014. I earned my B.S. degree in Statistics and an outstanding graduate award at Tongji University, Shanghai, China in 2014.

I like statistical thinking and have great enthusiasm for programming, mostly in R and Python. Consequently, I have been developing and maintaining a few R packages and Python modules for some statistical projects. I believe it is really an exciting and challenging world for statisticians and/or data scientists.

I enjoy using Emacs and Arch Linux every day. I would like to contribute more to open source efforts as I learn more.

Sitting and coding in front of monitor all day long is definitely not the life style I want to have. So I cook for myself almost every day and do physical workouts every other day to stay away from my laptop for a couple of hours.

One of my favorite statistical concepts is martingale learned from probability theory since

In a sense life itself is a martingale.

Formulated by the Nobel Prize laureate of 2002, Imre Kert‌ész, in his book Ad kudarc with the Swedish title Fiasko:

It is not the future that is expecting me, just the next moment, the future does not exist, it is nothing but a perpetual ongoing, a present now. The prediction for my future—is the quality of my present.
