About me

I am a third-year PhD student (2021 - present) of Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU). I am fortunate to be advised by Prof. Rui Wang. Before that, I received the bachelor degree in Software Engineering from South China University of Technology (SCUT). I am currently a research intern at Tencen AI Lab, co-advised by Dr. Xing Wang and Dr. Zhaopeng Tu.
