Education Background

Bachelor of Computer Science, Tsinghua University, China, 2014

Ph.D. in Computer Science, Tsinghua University, China, 2019

Research Interests

Machine learning, Deep learning, Bayesian methods

Research Status

Research work focuses on efficient algorithms and basic theories for deep learning. Aiming at the problems of large amount of computation, slow convergence speed and high memory consumption of deep learning algorithms, I proposed several efficient algorithms with theoretical guarantees: (1) fast and memory-saving neural network training algorithm based on random quantization; (2) Efficient machine learning algorithms based on random sampling and variance reduction; (3) Efficient algorithms for deep generative models; (4) Efficient algorithms and large-scale training systems for topic models. The research results are released as open source software such as ActNN, WarpLDA, and ZhuSuan. The above achievements have been published in more than 20 papers in the top international conferences on machine learning such as NeurIPS, ICML, and ICLR. The research work is supported by the Youth Fund of Natural Science Foundation of China.
