I was born and raised in China. After completing my undergraduate study in China, I came to Northwestern University pursuing my Ph.D. in physics. My general research interests are complex systems and complex networks. Currently, I’m working on understanding the relations between functions (dynamic) and the structure of complex networks. I am trying to develop theoretical and computational frameworks that aim to help us understand universal principles that govern the co-evolution of those networks and their functions.
