Bio

I am a first-year CS Ph.D student at HKUNLP Lab, The University of Hong Kong. I am fortunately co-advised by Lingpeng Kong and Tao Yu. Before that, I received my B.S. in Computer Science from Peking University, advised by Prof.Zhihong Deng.

My primary research focus is to enable scientific discoveries using natural language processing, specifically in the comprehension of biological sequences and automated agents. For fun, I explore theories of machine learning generalization and robustness.

Miscellaneous

I am a hiking enthusiast and my favorite trail is the MacLehose Trail, Section 2 in Hong Kong. I played piano for 8 years as a child and just started getting back into it. I am a keen fan of Bach and recently learning the Goldberg-Variationen. I love two kinds of elegance -- beautiful music and elegant proof.
