I am a first-year Ph.D. student in Electrical and Computer Engineering from 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.
My current research interest is to bridge deep learning theory and applications. Specifically, I am interested in using deep learning theory (i.e., theory of deep neural networks) to provide theoretical guarantees for some deep learning applications (e.g., meta-learning, reinforcement learning, and adversarial machine learning), or to develop application algorithms motivated by deep learning theory.
