Hey! I am a third-year PhD in Machine Learning at Cambridge, working with Prof. Joan Lasenby from Trinity. During PhD, I also spend some time at Isaac Newton Institute & Faculty of Math, Google Research, Amazon Alexa, BioMap, Entos, and Caltech.

I earned a Physics BS from Nanjing University (2018), visited Stanford & Cal, worked in Finance (S&T, Quant), co-founded a Startup on Digitial Health.

Research Interest

I work on 3D and Graph structures, emphasizing Representation Learning & Health topics.
I also spent time on Federated Learning, Quantum Computing and Signal Processing.
I will be on the job market, academia/startup/industry, in early or mid '23.
I am now most interested in Genomes and Oncology.
