I am an M.S. student in CS @ UIUC. I finished my B.E. in Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU) at 2019 and won the title "Outstanding Graduates of Shanghai". The same year, I have also interned in Tencent Social Ads (Beijing) for six months.

I am currently fortunate to work with Prof. Jimeng Sun and our talented members in SunLab. My recent work is deep learning (e.g., graph neural networks) for drug recommendation. I am also broadly interested in algorithmics design and analysis, e.g., graph algorithms, matrix/tensor methods, sequence modelings, for other healthcare challenges.

Recent Highlights

  •   [Aug. 2020] Move to a new apartment (right near Siebel Center) and get some new staff: a tripod for my camera, 12 potted plants, and a Yamaha folk acoustic guitar.
