I am a final-year Ph.D. candidate in Computer Science Department, UCLA, advised by Prof. Song-Chun Zhu, Prof. Ying Nian Wu and Prof. Demetri Terzopoulos. I did my undergrad at The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST). I have conducted research at Google DeepMind, Google Brain, Meta Fundamental AI Research (FAIR), Amazon AWS AI, and SenseTime Research.

My research interests include Representation Learning, Generative Modeling and Sequential Decision Making. Currently, my work focuses on recovering the abstract structure of high-dimensional and sequential signals in latent representations, with the aim of potentially explaining the emergence of the conscious mind. Previously, I worked on reinforcement learning and AutoML.
