I'm a Ph.D. candidate in Department of Mathematics at University of California, San Diego, advised by Professor Wen-Xin Zhou. I'm interested in non-asymptotic theory of statistical learning and inference under growing dimensionality and/or sparsity scenario, with a particular focus on quantile-involved learning tasks. I also enjoy programming and have developed several open-source R/C++ packages. Before joining UCSD, I obtained my B.S. in Mathematics from Fudan University and M.S. in Statistics from University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.

The pronunciation of my first name is close to [Shiau-Oh].

I'm currently working for Mayo Clinic as a research intern, and I'll be on the job market in the Fall of 2021.
