Welcome to my homepage! I am curently working at MIT IBM Watson AI Lab,
IBM Research, AI Foundations. I received my PhD under the supervision
of Professor Dale Schuurmans and
Professor Russell Greiner at the Department of Computing Science, University of
Alberta, Canada. My research focuses on the beautiful field of machine learning. I have also experienced teaching machine learning as the instructor at department of computer science of UCSC.
Research keywords:Machine learning,
Optimization, Convex Modelling, Non-convex global optimization,
Infrence-free structured output prediction, Co-embedding, Joint embedding, Constrained co-embedding, Metric
learning, Bilinear models, Matrix and Tensor completion, Association
learning, Link prediction, Relation learning, Multilable
prediction, Multi modal representation learning,
Logic Embedding, Hierarchy embedding
Please refer to my PhD Dissertation for a cohessive, clear and patiently described
trajectory of my PhD research. It is designed to be easy to read.
