I’m a second-year Master’s candidate studying Computer Science at Tsinghua University. I’m supervised by Professor Jun Zhu in the Tsinghua Statistical Artificial Intelligence and Learning Group. This past summer I interned with the Google Brain Genomics team.

Previously, I was a Senior Software Engineer working on Search at Salesforce. I studied Computer Science at Swarthmore College.
