Assistant Teaching Professor in the Department of Mathematics, Northeastern University, Boston.(Since 2019 Fall)
Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Nevada, Reno, 2016-2019. (Mentor: Chris Rogers).
B.S. Mathematics and applied mathematics, Hebei Normal University, 2007.
My research interests are in Algebraic Topology and Group Theory, and their relation with Algebra, Geometry and Combinatorics. More specifically,
1. Rational homotopy theory, especially formality properties and Massey products.
2. Cohomology jumping loci: characteristic varieties and resonance varieties of spaces and CDGA models.
3. Combinatorial group theory, especially various Lie algebras associated to finitely generated groups.
4. Configuration spaces, pure virtual braid groups, pure welded braid groups, fundamental groups of algebraic varieties, picture groups from the quiver representations, etc.
When I worked on my MS degree, I did some computations (see Papers ) on the stable homotopy theory of spheres.
Recently, I am working on problems on moduli spaces in rational homotopy theory.
In Summer 2019, I teach a mini-course for graduate students on Rational Homotopy Theory.
In Fall 2018, I taught two courses: Math 283: Calculus 3. and Math 330: Linear Algebra
See Teaching page for all courses I taught.
