Short Bio

I am a third-year Ph.D. student in Computer Science at Cornell University, advised by Prof. Chris De Sa. Our group webpage can be found here. I am broadly interested in building scalable and provably correct machine learning systems. My research has touched on distributed optimization, low precision training, model compression, and machine learning applications. I obtained my BEng degree in Electronic Engineering from Shanghai Jiao Tong University.
