About me

I am a first year Ph.D. candidate at the Center of Foundational Artificial Intelligence of University College London, supervised by François-Xavier Briol and Arthur Gretton. My research interests center around probabilistic modelling and causal inference.
Prior to my PhD, I obtained my bachelor's degree from the department of Electronic Engineering, Tsinghua Universisty. I have worked as a research assistant at Oxford Applied and Theoretical Machine Learning Group (OATML), advised by Tim G. J. Rudner and Yarin Gal. I have also worked as a research assistant at Statistics and Machine Learning group at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST), advised by Tong Zhang.
