Bio [CV]
I am a first-year PhD student of CMU SCS Computer Science Department. I received my Bachelor's degree in computer science and applied math (double degree) from Peking University. My major research area is machine learning, including theory, algorithms and systems. I am deeply interested in designing algorithms that make machine learning faster and better, developing theories that guide the design of such algorithms, and creating systems that are efficient and user-friendly. Recently I am focusing on generalization theory, representation learning and generative models.
As an undergraduate I was advised by Liwei Wang. I also visited UCLA in the summer of 2019 and worked with Cho-Jui Hsieh. From Sept 2019 to Jun 2020 I worked as a full-time research intern in Microsoft Research Asia (MSRA) machine learning group.
News:
