I will be joining Penn as a Ph.D. student in the coming fall.
Entered URFP '18.
I will be visiting Prof. Dawn Song's lab in the coming summer.
Entried to Dean's Honours List 2016-17.


I am a third-year Ph.D. student at The University of Pennsylvania working on machine learning theories and commonsense causal reasoning, where I am very fortunate to be advised by Dan Roth and Weijie J. Su. Before joining Penn, I received my Bachelors in Computer Science with First Class Honors from The University of Hong Kong where my advisor was Hubert T.-H. Chan. I also spent a summer visiting UC Berkeley.
