About Me

I am a graduate student pursuing a PhD's degree in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I am advised by Prof. Kangwook Lee. My current research interests include large language models and machine learning fairness. I received my Master's degree in Statistics from UW-Madison in 2020, where I was advised by Prof. Miaoyan Wang. Prior to UW-Madison, I obtained my Bachelor's degree in Statistics from Nankai University in 2019.

I am looking for internship in summer 2024.
