ABOUT ME

I'm a postdoctoral researcher at Stanford AI Lab working with Fei-Fei Li, Silvio Savarese, and Juan Carlos Niebles. I was a graduate student in Computation and Neural Systems and postdoctoral researcher in Computing and Mathematical Sciences at Caltech, supervised by Joel W. Burdick and Yisong Yue. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Biomedical Engineering from Tsinghua University in 2010. I spent one year after college working at the Institute of Neuroscience, Chinese Academy of Sciences with Mu-ming Poo and Yang Dan.


RESEARCH INTERESTS

My research interests are in the areas of Machine Learning, Neural Engineering, AI-Assisted Healthcare, and Robotics. I work on methodologies for bandit problems, Bayesian optimization, computer vision, reinforcement learning; and their applications in neuromodulation, robot control, and other healthcare problems.
