About Me

I obtained Ph.D degree in CSE from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology in 2018. My Ph.D supervisor was Prof. Dit-Yan Yeung. Before that, I received my B.E. degree from Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 2014 under the supervision of Prof. Wu-Jun Li and Prof. Shi-Lin Wang. In 2019, I started my job as an applied scientist in Amazon Web Services (AWS) in the group lead by Dr. Mu Li and Dr. Alex Smola.

At Amazon, I'm working on democratizing machine learning on multimodal data to everyone via AutoGluon. I'm also a committer of GluonNLP and Apache/MXNet (incubating). In addition, I'm interested in spatiotemporal analysis and the general area of Deep Learning for Earth Science.

We are hiring interns! If you are interested in solving challenging problems related to multimodal AutoML, deep learning for earth science and code analysis, feel free to drop me an email!
