I am a first-year Ph.D. student in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC), working on machine learning with theoretical guarantees. My advisor is Prof. Bo Li, and I am also collaborating with Prof. Ruoyu Sun and Prof. Zhaoran Wang. Previously, I obtained my B.S. in 2019 from UIUC with double majors in (1) Statistics & Computer Science, (2) Physics. During my undergraduate studies, I was fortunate to work with Prof. Niao He and Prof. Jian Peng on machine learning.
My current research interest is on deep learning in multi-task scenarios, including meta-learning, multi-task learning, and life-long/continual learning. I am trying to provide a deeper theoretical understanding of them while developing applicable algorithms.
