About Me


I am a PhD student (second year) at Language Computing and Machine Learning Group, MOE Key Laboratory of Computational Linguistics, School of EECS, Peking University, supervised by Prof. Xu Sun.

Before that, I was an undergraduate student in Software Engineering, Huazhong University of Science and Technology under the guidance of Prof. Kun He.

My research interests lie within Natural Language Understanding, Multimodal Learning and Large-scale Pre-training. I'm also involved in Machine Learning problems like Adversarial Robustness.
