My name is 蔡醒诗 or Xing Shi Cai in English. I am postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Mathematics of Uppsala University (Sweden). My supervisor is Cecilia Holmgren. Before that, I did my PhD in Computer Science from McGill University (Canada) with Luc Devroye.

I am interested in probability, combinatorics, and experimental mathematics. The models that I study include randomized algorithms, random graph and random trees.

Before I went to Canada, I had been a software engineer in China for a long time. When I immigrated to Canada in 2010, I also worked for an Internet startup for about a year.

My undergraduate years was spent for a Computer Science degree at Xi'an Jiaotong University (西安交通大学) in Xi'an (西安) China.

I grew up in Sichuan province (四川), which is famous for its spicy Szechuan cuisine and panda bears.

In my spare time, I like reading and hiking. After when I moved to Uppsala, I started a MeetUp hiking group.
