I am an M.S. student in the Department of Computer Science, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Before that, I finish my B.E. in Shanghai Jiao Tong University and won the title Outstanding Graduates of Shanghai. I have taken an intern in Tencent Social Ads for six months in 2019. I also worked with Prof. Hari Sundaram in UIUC during 2018 summer.

Currently, I work with Professor Tarek F. Abdelzaher. We model, analyze, and simulate social media. I am also broadly interested in machine learning and deep learning on both foundations and applications, especially on graph learning, feature learning, sequential decision making and time series analysis. In the future, I hope to do more fundamental works.
