I am a Ph.D. Student at UW, working with Carlos Guestrin, and worked briefly with the late Ben Taskar. I am a member of MODE Lab .
Before comming to UW. I was Master student of Apex Data and Knowledge Management Lab, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, China.
I received my Bachelor degree in Computer Science from Shanghai Jiao Tong University, where I was a member of ACM Class, now part of Zhiyuan College in SJTU.


I am working on intersaction of learning and systems. I build many scalable learning systems with wide impact. The real excitement of this area comes from what can enable when we bring advanced learning techniques and system together. On that end, I am also pushing the direction on deep learning, knowledge transfer and lifelong learning. I am supported by Google PhD Fellowship
