I am a mathematician and statistician, currently working as a Neyman Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Statistics at University of California, Berkeley. Before that, I was a postdoctoral researcher in the group of Prof. Axel Munk at the Institute for Mathematical Stochastics, University of Göttingen. In my work I study change-point problems employing multiscale methods and blind source separation with certain finite alphabet constraints.
