My research interests include machine learning theory; probabilistic graphical models; high-dimensional signal and information processing; and physics-inspired optimization algorithms.
Specifically, I’m focusing on the following problems.
1. Theoretical aspects of machine learning with a special interest in the interdisciplinary field between high-dimensional statistics and statistical physics;
2. Online learning and continuous learning;
3. Graph neural networks and probabilistic graphical models.
I received my Ph.D. degree in Theoretical Physics from the Institute of Theoretical Physics, Chinese Academy of Science, Beijing, China, in 2015. I then joined the Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Harvard University, first as a Postdoctoral Fellow (Feb. 2015—Jan. 2018) and as a Research Associate (Feb. 2018—Aug. 2019). I won the Best Student Paper Award at the IEEE GlobalSIP Conference in 2014.
