I am a Ph.D. student in CSAIL and Machine Learning group of MIT EECS, under the supervision of Prof. Stefanie Jegelka and Prof. Antonio Torralba. I am supported by a IBM PhD Fellowship. Previously I worked with Prof. Sanja Fidler as a visiting student at University of Toronto and Prof. Min Sun as an undergraduate researcher at National Tsing Hua University, Taiwan. My research mainly focuses on building robust and generalizable machine learning systems with minimal supervision. In particular, I am interested in representation learning, unsupervised learning, and statistical learning theory.
