About Me

I am a Ph.D. candidate at the Bradley Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Virginia Tech. I am advised by Dr. Dhruv Batra.

Form 2016-2017, I was a research intern at Institute of Deep Learning, Baidu Research, working with Baidu Distinguished Scientist Wei Xu and research scientist Yi Yang, on meta-learning through natural languages.

From 2012-2013, I was a Research Assistant at Computational Bioinformatics and Bio-imaging Laboratory(CBIL) working on Genome/pathway-wide detection of interacting genomic/epigenetic loci and environment variables.

I received my bachelors degree in Electrical Engineering from Tianjin University with a minor in Finance from Nankai University in July 2009, and received my Master degree in Electrical Engineering from Tianjin University advised by Prof. Huaxiang Wang in July 2012.

Research

My previous works lie at the intersection of machine learning, computer vision and natural language processing, with a focus on developing diverse models that learn from large quantities of data and make progress on various vision problems.

Now, I am excited about the neuroscience-inspired models that can endow machines with the ability to learn like humans. In particular, I am interested in how fast acquire knowledge through natural language conversation and infer hidden facts, e.g., intrinsic physical properties by interacting with environments.
