I am a third-year CS Ph.D. student at UC Santa Barbara, advised by Prof. Yu-Xiang Wang and Prof. Lei Li. Previously, I graduated from the Department of Computer Science, Zhejiang University. During my undergrad, I was fortunate to work with Prof. Xi Li, Quanzheng Li, and Xiang Li. I also did internships in Alibaba DAMO Academy and Microsoft Search, Assistant and Intelligence.

Now, I am interested in Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing.
