Stanford University

I am a Stein Fellow in the Department of Statistics at Stanford University. I obtained my PhD degree in Applied and Computational Mathematics from Princeton University in May 2022 under the supervision of Professor Allan Sly and Professor Emmanuel Abbe. Prior to Princeton, I received my Bachelor of Science in Mathematics from University of Hong Kong. My research focuses on probability theory and theoretical machine learning.

I have a twin sister Shuangning Li. She graduated from Stanford University and is at Harvard University now. She works in statistics. Here is a quiz on my sister's website: Can you tell us apart?
