🧑 About Me

I am now in my second year of Phd. in data science and analysis (DSA) at HKUST, advised by Jia li and Yangqiu Song.

I got my master’s degree from Peking University, majored in computer science, supervised by Yuexian Zou, and got my bachelor’s degree from Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications. I was employed as a research intern by Alibaba Damo Academy, Microsoft research and Tencent AI Lab, worked closely with Daxin Jiang, Linjun Shou, Yan Wang.

My research interests focus on nlp, including question answering, cross-lingual understanding, dialog generation and multi-modal fusion.
Currently, my works now are focusing on Large Language Models and Cross-Lingual language reasoning. I also have some experiences in designing or pre-trainig large language models, including chinese, English and multi-lingual. I am familiar with speech and audio processing (a little, LOL)

In my free time, I enjoy swimming, playing board games. Additionally, I occasionally post random thoughts and share paper details on Zhihu.

📢 I am looking for corporation and internship oppotunity, please feel free to contact me if you have interests.

📢 I am expected to graduate in 2025. If you have any suitable job recommendations, please feel free to contact me.
