Hi, my name is Lijun Ding, and I am currently a postdoc at the University of Washington. You can also find me here. I am also on the job market this year!

This blog contains my original little discoveries in Optimization, Probability, and Statistics from my studies along my academic journey at the University of Chicago, Cornell University, and the University of Washington. Though some of them turn out to be special cases of some more general theorem, because of the specialty, the proof here is much simpler or more elementary. They are usually the side products of my teaching assistance of a course, a course I took, or my research.

Hope these discoveries will be intriguing and inspiring to you (sorry for the typos in the posts, please let me know if you find them).
