Greetings! I am a Research Assitant Professor (postdoc) at UIC. I obtained my PhD from Princeton University. My advisor was Professor János Kollár. I obtained my B.Sc. at Peking University.
I am interested in commutative algebra and algebraic geometry, especially singularities in positive and mixed characteristics.

6. (In preparation) Uniform bounds in excellent rings and applications to semicontinuity. Draft (2023)
5. The gamma-construction and permanence properties of the (relative) F-rational signature. arXiv preprint (2022)
4. On some properties of birational derived splinters. arXiv preprint (2022)
3. Appendix to Direct summands of klt singularities (authored by Ziquan Zhuang). arXiv preprint (2022)
2. The relative minimal model program for excellent algebraic spaces and analytic spaces in equal characteristic zero, coauthored with Takumi Murayama. arXiv preprint (2022)

Some results I discovered myself and found interesting. Will be expanded soon.

1. A characterization of Noetherian local rings. A local ring is Noetherian if and only if its maximal ideal is finitely generated, and every finitely generated ideal of the ring is a finite intersection of finitely generated primary ideals. Let me know if you find a different proof than mine!
