I am an associate professor at Institute of Automation, Chinese Academy of Sciences. I was a postdoc associate at Cornell University, working with Prof. Fei WangPrior to Cornell, I had a wonderful year at Noah’s Ark Lab, Huawei. I got my Ph.D. from Institute of Automation, Chinese Academy of Sciences


I am broadly interested in machine learning, health care, and natural language processing. Especially, I am excited about solving problems on knowledge integration, information scarcity, and environment shift from perspectives of theory and application. My recent research focuses on algorithms in the directions of Reinforcement Learning and Deep Generative Learning.
