Biography

I worked as an R&D Team Manager and Staff Engineer at Tencent (2014-2018). Previously I was a Team Leader and Senior Software Engineer at Baidu (2012-2014), and a Software Engineer at Huawei (2011-2012). From these positions, I gained industry-level online product R&D experience in Data Mining, Applied Machine Learning, Large-Scale Distributed System, and Mobile Operating System Development. Additionally, I gained three years of engineering team management experience (10-20 SDEs).

Internet products which I worked for include: Tencent Cloud, Tencent Maps, Tencent AI in Car, Tencent Games, Baidu Maps, Huawei Smartphone.

Beginning in fall 2018, I switched my career track from industry to academia. Now I am a Ph.D. student and Research Assistant in Computer Science at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, United States. I am generally interested in Deep Learning, Machine Learning, Large-Scale Distributed System, and Mobile Operating System.
