My research focuses on probabilistic models for learning problems arising from real applications. My research interests include probabilistic graphical models, Bayesian deep learning, spatial data modeling, text modeling, and recommendation. See my publication list.
Ongoing research projects

I received my B.S. in computer science from Hebei University of Technology in 2006. After three years study in LAMDA group, I received my M.S. degree from Nanjing Univeristy in 2009. My advisor was Prof. Yuan Jiang and Zhi-Hua Zhou. Then I worked in Alibaba for one year and a half. After that, I went to Oregon State University and completed my PhD degree in 2016. My PhD advisor was Prof. Thomas Dietterich. Prior to joining Tufts, I worked as a postdoc researcher at Columbia University working with Prof. David Blei.
