I am a postdoc associate at Cornell University. Prior to Cornell, I have a wonderful year at Noah’s Ark Lab, Huawei. I got my Ph.D. in Computer Science from Institute of Automation, Chinese Academy of Sciences


I am broadly interested in machine learning, health care, and natural language processing. My recent research focuses in the direction of leveraging graph and sequential structures (MemGCN), and meta-learning with limited data resources (MetaPred). Especially, I am excited about solving problems on knowledge integration, information scarcity, and environment shift from perspectives of theory and application.
