We are always looking for excellent students to join our group. If you are interested, feel free to drop us a line and indicate how your research interests or experiences match our research. I try my best to respond to emails that are relevant.


Main requirements: (1) Self-motivated. You will not be able to learn much here if you do not motivate yourself or cannot devote much time; (2) Strong mathematical background. We are interested in developing principled and rigorous techniques; (3) Good programming skills (well, self-evident).
