I am a PhD student at Rutgers University since Fall 2021. I’m fortunate to be advised by Karl Stratos. I received M.S. in CS from Rutgers in Spring 2021. Prior to RU, I graduated from University of Science and Technology of China with a B.S. in Applied Physics. My research interests are Natural Language Processing, Machine Learning and Deep Learning.
