I am currently a second year graduate student from Gaoling School of Artificial Intelligence, Renmin University of China.

I'm fortunate to be advised by Prof. Wayne Xin Zhao. Visit AI Box for details about our research group. I also work closely with Dr. Xu Chen. My major research interest lies on Graph Machine Learning and Recommendation System.

I will apply for Ph.D programs (2023 Fall). Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you’re interested!
