My research focuses on the interaction among machine learning, computer vision, optimization, and quantum computing.

My full publication list can be found in my Google Scholar page.

Recently, I am interested in the following areas.

  • Label-Efficient Learning Paradigms
    • unsupervised/self-supervised learning
    • partially supervised learning
    • transfer learning/domain adaptation
  • Learning-Based Computer Vision
    • semantic understanding
    • image restoration & enhancement
    • medical image analysis

I have been actively involved in the research in the following areas.

  • Quantum Machine Learning
  • Distributed/Federated Learning

Meanwhile, I am collaborating with researchers with different backgrounds to apply AI/ML in the following areas.

  • AI for Affordable Healthcare
  • AI for Fair Education 
  • Data-Driven Energy Control
  • Financial Machine Learning



I am a Ph.D. candidate at the Department of Computer Science, University of Oxford. I am generously funded by the Department of Computer Science Scholarship. Prior to Oxford, I did research at the Machine Learning Department, Carnegie Mellon University. I obtained my M.S. degree from the Department of Statistical Science, Cornell University
