I graduated in May 2018 from Haverford College as a Chemistry major. Haverford College is a small liberal arts college in Philadelphia which produced few engineers, but I never deviated far from the engineering path ever since my high school years in Beijing. Mentored by Prof. Joshua Schrier, I built my thesis by quantifying the improvements that new algorithms and failed reactions (on top of successful ones) can bring to machine learning predictions of untested reactions; I also explored the scalability of each algorithm.

I can be called upon to balance the team numbers in a basketball game, though you might see me taking advantage of the college swimming pool more often. I often spend my vacations hiking or diving. I like to divide the rest of my time studying and practicing both computational and natural languages.
