   [Another me]


I'm currently an Applied Scientist at Amazon. I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from Department of Computer Science, University of Texas at Austin in 2020, where I was very fortunate to be advised by Prof. Purnamrita Sarkar and co-advised by Prof. Deepayan Chakrabarti. Before that I got my bachelor degree in Information Engineering at School of Electronics, Information and Electrical Engineering, Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU) with highest honor in 2014. I was a member of the Institute of Wireless Communication and Technology under the guidance of Prof. Xinbing Wang at SJTU.

My research interests are in statistical machine learning.
