Biography

[Curriculum Vitae]

I am currently a researcher at Microsoft Research Asia, Machine Learning Group, headed by Tao Qin starting from 2019. Before that, I received my Ph.D. degree in 2019 from the TSAIL Group at the Department of Computer Science and Technology of Tsinghua University, supervised by Prof. Jun Zhu. I received my B.Sc. degree in 2014 from the Department of Physics of Tsinghua University. I also visited Prof. Lawrence Carin's group at Duke University from Oct. 2017 to Oct. 2018.

My research interests are primarily on statistical machine learning, especially general Bayesian inference methods (e.g., variational inference and MCMC), their collaboration with manifold structures, and their applications in Bayesian deep learning and large scale learning tasks.
