I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Nevada, Reno. Before that I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Toronto for 2012-2015. And yet before that I obtained my Ph.D. degree in Mathematics at the Pennsylvania State University in 2012, under the supervision of Robert Vaughan and Winnie Li, and a B.Sc. degree in Mathematics at the Nankai University in 2007.

Here is my *Curriculum
Vitae*.

I am currently teaching Math 373 Theory of Positive Integers in the Spring 2017. I taught Math 410/610 Complex Analysis in the Fall 2016 and Math 373 Theory of Positive Integers in the Spring 2016.

I am interested in analytic number theory, and its interactions with diophantine approximation, diophantine geometry and harmonic analysis.

The following is a list of my research papers in the reverse chronological order. For the published versions and Math Reviews, please see MathSciNet (subscription required). Preprints are available on the arXiv and Google Scholar (The versions that appear there may slightly differ from the printed versions).

Hausdorff theory of dual approximation on planar curves, 17 pages.
