I am a PhD student at the University of Cambridge supervised by Qingyuan Zhao. My current research focuses on causal inference, sensitivity analysis and randomization inference.

Beyond this, I undertook industry projects in the implementation of RNNs with Tensorflow, Bayesian optimal experimental design and detection of synthetically lethal gene pairs based on CRISPR knock-out experiments. I am also a consultant at Cambridge’s Statistics Clinic.
