I joined the IIS, Academia Sinica, in 2012 as a postdoc for an extended period of 6 years to concentrate on my research. During the time, I was fortunate to have Dr. KaiMin Chung as a collaborator and a friend for discussions on my research and career. I joined the CSIE department in National ChungCheng University, Chiayi, Taiwan, in 2018 as an assistant professor and initiated my training as a faculty member in academic institutes.
In August 2021, I joined the CS department in National YangMing ChiaoTung University, Hsinchu, Taiwan, where I am serving my duty as an associate professor.
My research interests have been surrounding the design and analysis of approximation algorithms for various types of fundamental combinatorial optimization problems. I enjoy the intriguing exploration process for unknowns that are fundamental in computer science.
