About Me

I am a second-year PhD student in Computer Science at University of Washington, Seattle, advised by Prof. Alex Ratner. Before that, I was an undergraduate student in Computer Science of University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, where I was fortunated to be advised by Prof. Jiawei Han.

My current research interests are Data Management for Machine Learning and Data-centric AI/ML with an emphasis on effort-light approach. My ultimate goal is to build effective, efficient and explainable ML systems to facilitate new tasks or human decision-making process by leveraging knowledge in the form of heuristics, labels and trained models. My past explorations lay in the intersection of data mining, machine learning and natural language processing.

Feel free to drop me an e-mail if you are interested in my research and want to discuss relevant research topic or potential collaborations.
