BIOGRAPHY

I am a PhD Candidate at UC San Diego department of Computer Science and Engineering advised by Prof. Rose Yu and a research intern at Google Cloud AI. I received my Bachelor degree in Mathematics from Huazhong University of Science and Technology and Master degree in Data Science from Northeastern University. My research interests are in spatiotemporal learning and physics-guided deep learning. For more details, see my resume and google scholar.

I am on job market this year, looking for research positions in the industry.
