I am a research scientist and team lead in NLP at Beijing Institute of General Artificical Intelligence (BIGAI).
I received my Ph.D. degree from the Department of Computer Science at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), under the supervision of Prof. Song-chun Zhu. Before that, I obtained bachelor degree of Computer Science at University of Minnesota. I also received B.E. degree from University of Electronic Science and Technology of China (UESTC).
My research interests lie in the intersection of statistical machine learning, vision-language modeling and cognition. Current research themes include:
Generative Modeling: Statistical generative modeling (energy-based models) for vision and language.
Multimodal Understanding: Fine-grained vision-language alignment and explainable VL modeling.
Cognitive Language Reasoning: Understand and reason underlying information in language and human conversations.
I am always looking for self-motivated interns and long-term collaborators. Please contact me if you have excellent background or share similar research interests with me.
