Short Biography

I am now a graduate student in Machine Learning Group at the University of Toronto, advised by Roger Grosse and David Duvenaud. My current research interests lie in machine learning and its applications to artificial intelligence. In particular, I focus on deep learning, statistical modeling and computing. During the undergraduate, I also worked on high-level computer vision.

Previously, I received my bachelor degree in Information Engineering from Zhejiang University in 2017. In 2016 summer, I was a visiting student in Center for Vision, Cognition, Learning, and Autonomy at UCLA, where I worked with Prof. Song-Chun Zhu and Ying Nian Wu. Besides, I spent half year at Microsoft Research Asia as research intern.
