About Me

I'm a second-year Ph.D. student at Mila and the University of Montreal, advised by Professor Aaron Courville.

My life goal is to understand intelligence and build the so-called AGI. I believe the critical thing is to keep thinking, learning, and exploring, so I won't limit my research to some particular topics until I find an approach that I truly believe in. 

Currently, I'm interested in long-sequence modeling with linear RNN/SSMs, and its application in RL. 

Previously I've worked on learning object-centric representations using structured generative models with Professor Sungjin Ahn at Rutgers University. I also had experience with computer vision when I started my research career in Professor Xiaowei Zhou's group at Zhejiang University.
