About me

Currently, I'm pursuing my doctoral degree in Computer Science in Acemap, IIOT Lab, at Shanghai Jiao Tong University, where I have the honor of being supervised by Prof. Weinan Zhang, Prof. Luoyi Fu and Prof. Xinbing Wang. I was also selected into Wenjun Wu Honored Ph.D. Class in 2021.

My research interests include natural language processing, knowledge graphs, and data mining. Specifically, I am devoted to the research of specialized domain large language models (collaborating with Prof. Junxian He and Prof. Zhouhan Lin) and utilizing AI techniques to improve geoscience and design practices as reliable AI systems (collaborating with Prof. Ying Wen).

What's more, I am in charge of several IIOT primary services:

For research:
