I get my Ph.D. degree from University of Utah in May, 2012. My primary research interest is in higher dimensional algebraic geometry (over field of complex numbers), especially those problems related to the Minimal Model Progarm. Currently I am also interested in the theory of singularities in positive characteristics (aka F-singularities), arc spaces and singularities, and derived categories and Bridgeland stability conditions.
