Short Bio

I am a Ph.D. candidate 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, provably correct and ubiquitous machine learning systems. My work has been recognized by ICML Outstanding Paper Award (Honorable Mention) and Meta PhD Fellowship. I've also worked/interned at Microsoft DeepSpeed, Google Cerebra and Amazon Forecast. I obtained my BEng degree in Electronic Engineering from Shanghai Jiao Tong University.
