I am a fifth-year PhD candidate in Computer Science Department, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.

My advisor is Prof. Mohammed J. Zaki and I previously worked with Prof. Heng Ji.

My research interests lie in Data Mining, Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning.

I received B.S. in Computer Science and Technology from Renmin University of China in 2017. I have also worked at Tencent AI lab and NIH as a research intern.
