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, data science, and data-centric AI. 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 especially LLM as AI Agents to solve data science related real-life issues (collaborating with Prof. Ying Wen).
