I received my bachelor’s degree from the electrical engineering department, Tsinghua University, Beijing in 2012. Since then, I joined the EECS department and Berkeley AI Research (BAIR) at UC Berkeley, to pursue my Ph.D. study on generative unsupervised learning models under the supervision of Professor Bruno Olshausen. Along the way, I have received my M.S. degree in EECS and M.A. degree in mathematics at Berkeley. In 2012, I was awarded the NSF GRFP fellowship. I also serve as a reviewer for NeurIPS, ICLR, ICML, AAAI, etc. When I’m away from my research, I enjoy practicing mixed martial art (MMA) and I’m an active member of the UC Berkeley Judo Team.
