  I am currently a Ph.D. student at Purdue University, Department of Computer Science, working on (Distributed) Optimization Theory for Machine Learning with Prof. Brian Bullins. I've also worked on Statistical Learning Theory of Deep Learning with Prof. Jean Honorio.
  Previously in 2020, I received my Bachelor Degree in Computer Science from Xi'an Jiaotong University (XJTU), Qian Xuesen Honors College. I spent 6 wonderful years at XJTU after direct admission from middle school to the XJTU Special Class for the Gifted Young / Honors Youth Program in 2014.
  From 2017 to 2020, I worked as a research assistant at the Institute of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics, XJTU with Prof. Xuguang Lan, Prof. Nanning Zheng and Dr. Hanbo Zhang on Deep Reinforcement Learning. I am also interested in and have research experience in Robotics, Computer Vision, and Machine Learning in general.
  In the summer of 2018, I visited National Unversity of Singapore (NUS) for the Summer Workshop in the School of Computing as a research intern. In the Fall semester of 2018, I visited University of California, Berkeley as an exchange student.
