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. I am recently doing self-supervised learning on EEG sleep data. My previous works include drug recommendation, social polarization mining, RTB, event popularity prediction. I am also broadly interested in algorithmics design and analysis, e.g., graph learning algorithms (GCN), matrix/tensor methods, sequence modelings, for other healthcare challengesi.

I have also worked with Prof. Tarek Abdelzaher (now an ACM and IEEE Fellow, Big Congrats!), Prof. Shuochao Yao (now an assistant professor in George Mason University, Big Congrats!) and other wonderful guys in CPS group for my first graduate year.
