I am currently looking for the 2022 phd position!

I am the fourth year student in School of the Gifted Young in University of Science and Technology of China. I have finished plenty of projects in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. Consequently, I have published or submitted several papers to various conferences. Check out my CV.

I am currently looking for the 2022 phd position.

Research Interests and Experiences

My research interests span from Information Retrieval to Natural Language Processing, along with Machine Learning, Statistics, Reinforcement Learning and Causal Inference.

I became a member in Lab for Data Science in October, 2020, under the supervision from Prof. Xiangnan He and Dr. Xin Xin. Then from April, 2021, I feel extremely lucky to have an internship in CSAIL, MIT, advised by Prof. Samuel Madden and Dr. Lei Cao. Besides, It's also my honor to have cooperated with Dr. Huaxiu Yao. Currently, I am an intern in NExT++, advised by Dr. Xiang Wang and Prof. Tat-Seng Chua.
