Ph.D Student, Computer Science
Nanyang Technological University, Singapore


I am a first-year PhD student and luckily advised by the brilliant and kind researcher Prof. Ziwei Liu. I am passionate about deep learning research in the following topics:

(1) Foundation Models: Stable Diffusion, GPT, they are seemingly promising to put AI with real intelligence into pratical use.

(2) Embodied AI: an autonomous agent that learns to solve challenging tasks within environment through interaction and exploration.

These are moonshot wild dreams and also what I will focus on in the long run.

Currently I base my first step research topics on computer-vision-in-the-wild and emerging abilities in foundation models.

I am always grateful to those more senior who have a deep understanding of these topics for their advice. Besides, I am always willing to collaborate with people who are also interested in relevant issues, and provide corresponding guidance to younger students (undergrad or master).
