About Me

Hello! I’m a passionate undergrad researcher at the intersection of machine learning, mathematics, and real-world applications. I am currently advised by Professor Jun Zhu at Tsinghua University. I am interested in machine learning, with a broad focus on optimization, AI for Science and human-AI interaction. I am also exploring the integration of human knowledge with DL and RL (in the context of LLMs) to build more intelligent and robust agents.

During my summer intership at Stanford, I am fortunate to work with PhD candidate Jackie Yang under the guidance of Professor James Landay and Professor Monica Lam. We developed the first socially appropriate whispered voice input method using earbuds. The cross-lingual learning ability and hidden knowledge distribution in large models were particularly fascinating to me.
