Research Manager

I am a Research Scientist manager supporting a machine learning team for ads ranking. Our team consists of world-class machine learning experts, working on advanced model architectures for deep neural networks, recommender systems, large scale distributed training, meta-learning algorithms, reinforcement learning, and new learning formulations. Our mission is to build meaningful connections between people and businesses with machine learning technologies.

Prior to joining Facebook, I obtained my PhD degree in machine learning in 2016 from Washington University in St. Louis, under the supervision of Yixin Chen and Kilian Weinberger. I received my bachelor degree fromĀ  the University of Science and Technology of China in 2011.

I received a distinguished paper award at AMIA 2015, best student paper award runner-up at KDD14 and nomination for best paper award at ICDM13. I am also actively serving in the program committees of various conferences, including NIPS, ICML, ICLR, KDD, and AISTATS.
