About Me

I am a fourth-year Ph.D. student in Computer Science at SoC and SCI, University of Utah. I received my M.S. degree at University of Pittsburgh and my B.E. degree at South China University of Technology(SCUT). I also spent time at Schlumberger-Doll Research as research intern and at Amazon as Applied Scientist Intern working on Privacy-preserving learning algorihtms and incontext few-shots learning with pretrained large language/multi-modality models.


My principal research interests lie in developing flexible and scalable algorithms that can learn from complex, structural, and high-dimensional data within the Bayesian framework. I am advised by Dr. Shandian Zhe and Dr. Mike Kirby. Currently, we are working on multi-fidelity, multi-task active learning/Bayesian optimization problems with deep models. Prior to joining UofU, I spent some time working on reinforcement learning problems that help automatic agents make rational decisions from temporal data under uncertainties.
