I am a first-year PhD student at UCLA co-advised by Kai-Wei Chang and Nanyun (Violet) Peng. Prior to that, I got my M.S. degree from UIUC in 2023 supervised by Heng Ji, and my B.S. degree from USTC in 2020. I have work experience in IBM Research, Bytedance AI Lab and MSRA.

In the field of Natural Language Processing (NLP), my research interest lies in enhancing autonomy of NLP systems. I am currently interested in:

  • Embodied AI: vision-and-language model, LLM for embodied planning, modeling world dynamics
  • Code generation: RLHF for code generation, code generation for planning & tool usage

In the past I also have research experience in text generation and information extraction.

I am looking for research internship opportunities for 2024 summer.
