My long-term research goal is to endow computers with some of the sophisticated reasoning abilities that come naturally to humans. To achieve that, I want to first gain a better high-level understanding of human intelligence through computational cognitive science (CoCoSci).

From early 2016 to early 2018, I worked in Prof. Xiaolin Hu’s group. I mainly worked on algorithmic music composition with machine learning. We experimented with methods based on artificial neural networks and statistical relational learning. I also worked on other machine learning projects such as image segmentation contest on Kaggle and applying topic models to image captioning tasks.

After choosing computational cognitive science as a future direction, I worked in Prof. Ed Vul’s lab in UCSD during summer 2018. We’ve been working on a project in the behavioral game theory domain.
