I am generally interested in embodied AI, which enables learning through
interaction with environments, and mainly focus on reinforcement learning (RL).
Specifically, I am keen on:
Besides the above mentioned, my curiosities naturally extend to game theory, neuroscience, epistemology, and so on. I believe that the RL community will evolve together with these fields.
- model-free RL algorithms,
- multi-agent and multi-task deep RL, and
- RL scalability, reproducibility, and replicability.
Toward the overall goal of AI to create intelligent machines, I have studied,
researched, and done work in RL, computer vision, and the intersection of
learning, engineering, and physics. Currently, I am a research intern in deep RL
group at ByteDance AI
Lab. Our group focuses on game AI and I research how
advanced deep RL algorithms can be employed in multi-agent games to tackle complex tasks
with partial observability.
During Summer 2020, I
glad to collaborate with Jim Fan
from Stanford Vision and
Lab. We worked on visual control and distributed RL with particular
focuses on sim-to-sim and sim-to-real transfer. Before that, I worked as an
researcher supervised by Dr. Chang Liu in Agile
Tomography Group at IDCOM. We developed line-of-sight laser
imaging systems empowered by deep learning.

This paper subsumes my bachelor thesis.
This is the first time, to the best of our knowledge, that a deep learning-based
algorithm for Chemical Species Tomography (CST) has been experimentally
validated for simultaneous imaging of
multiple critical parameters in reactive flows using a low-complexity optical
sensor with severely limited number of laser beams.
Wavelength Modulation Spectroscopy-Based Tomography Image Reconstruction
thesis / bibtex
This thesis is subsumed by our CSTNet paper.
To the best of my knowledge, it is the first time to verify and demonstrate the
feasibility and effectiveness of applying deep learning-based laser tomographic
experimental imaging of flame temperature distributions.
