I am an Associate Professor (Tenure-Track) at Gaoling School of Artificial Intelligence, Renmin University of China. From January 2018 to September 2020, I am a senior research scientist in Infinia ML, Inc. At the same time, I am a visiting researcher in Prof. Lawrence Carin's research group, Duke University. From August 2017 to January 2018, I was a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Duke University, supervised by Prof. Lawrence Carin. I got my Ph.D. from the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Georgia Tech. I was jointly supervised by Prof. Hongyuan Zha (CSE) and Prof. Mark A. Davenport (ECE).

My research lies in structured data-oriented machine learning and applications. In particular, I am interested in broad topics in computational optimal transport, temporal point processes, generative modeling, signal processing, and their applications to the inference, analysis, sampling, generation, and control problems for graphs and graph-based signals.
