I am a second year Ph.D. student under the advisement of professor Yann LeCun with an interest in machine learning, including deep learning, numerical optimization, and some learning theory. Before being a Ph.D. student, I already spent 2 years as an M.S. student at NYU, during which time I participated in some research projects. Before coming to the U.S., I was an undergraduate student at the School of Computer Science and Technology, Tianjin University, conducting research in computational photography advised by professor Shiguang Liu.

If you need more information, my resume is available by email.

    The Landscape of Deep Learning

    Tue, Jan 27, 2015
    This blog summarizes an answer I posted to a question regarding what kinds of research are there for deep learning, in Zhihu, a Chinese equivalence of Quora. Surprisingly, that answer drew a lot of attention from many students and young researchers in China and it is currently ranked the second best answer in the subcategory of “deep learning”. I hope the summarization here could offer my bit of thought to a broader audience by translating that answer to English.
