I am a research scientist in the ByteDance applied machinge learning (AML) research team at Seattle. My research interest is in learning theory, deep learning and optimization. I am also interested in lower bounds and hardness results in computational complexity. Previously, I received Ph.D. in the Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science & Engineering at the University of Washington in 2020. I was fortunate to be advised by Professor Paul Beame and Professor Kevin Jamieson. Before that, I received my B.E. in computer science from IIIS (Yao Class) at Tsinghua University in 2014.
