About Me


I am currently studying my MPhil in Computer Science in HKUST, supervised by Prof. QU Huamin. I am highly interested in Data Analytics and Visualization, having done many projects to try and find patterns inside large datasets, shown below.

On a personal level, I am an avid badminton and table tennis player and try to fit them into my schedule atleast once a week.
