I completed my Ph.D. at the University of California, San Diego as an NSF Fellow in Vision and Learning in Humans and Machines. Subsequently I was an NIH Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of California, San Francisco developing robust Bayesian statistical models for imaging functional brain activity and for finding sparse representations using large dictionaries of candidate features. After several years at Microsoft Research in Beijing, I have now moved to a new position with the Amazon AI Lab in Shanghai, where my research focus will involve generative models and graph neural networks.
