About me

I’m a senior undergraduate student at Beijing Institute of Technology (BIT), majoring in Statistics and minoring in Artificial Intelligence. I’m currently working as a research assistant at Peking University DAIR lab, supervised by Prof. Bin Cui. I expect to graduate in 2023 and I am aiming for a PhD position for 2023 Fall.

My research interests mainly focus on Machine Learning, especially Automatic Machine Learning (AutoML). Previously I worked on Transfer Learning for Hyperparameter Optimization (HPO) and Bayesian Optimization. Presently I am focusing on some online scenarios.
