About Me

I am currently a software engineer at Google Cloud AI, working on Dialogflow.

I obtained my Ph.D. in Computing Science from Simon Fraser University in Sept 2021, advised by Professor Jian Pei. During my Ph.D. study, my research focuses on the understanding of machine learning and deep learning, with an emphasis on the interpretability and model complexity of deep architectures.

Before that, I worked as a software engineer at Sogou and Baidu, focused on distributed cloud platform and Hadoop, Spark. I obtained my B.E. degree in Computer Science from the University of Science and Technology of China in 2013.
