Short Bio I’m currently a Ph.D. student at Momentum Lab, Dept. of Computer Science at The University of Tokyo, working under the supervision of Prof. Lei Ma. I have graduated from University of Alberta and was fortunate to be funded by AMII for my M.Sc. study. My research interests primarily focus on the quality assurance of complex systems, with a particular emphasis on testing, analysis, monitoring, and verification techniques. In addition, I am also interested in exploring the robustness of AI models and developing Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) solutions for machine learning (ML) development. I also possess experience in AI stack and blockchain technologies. Before joining Momentum Lab, I was fortunate to work with Prof. Haoyu Wang, Prof. Dan Pei and Prof. Yuanchun Li.

When I'm free, I like to play video games, watch anime, and read books. Most of them are about fiction (especially Sci-Fi). For anime, I particularly like Cowboy Bebop , Ghost In The Shell , and Made in Abyss . For Sci-Fi, I'm a big fan of Cixin Liu , Vernor Steffen Vinge , Hannu Rajaniemi , and Isaac Asimov . I would say Sci-Fi shapes my dream, and those brilliant ideas are one of the biggest motivations for my research. They, together with the help of my supvervisors and friends, help me go through the hardest time.

In the second year of my undergraduate study, I was lost and in complete despair. One day I left all my work and spent the whole day writing a Sci-Fi novel with over 10,000 Chinese words. That novel, entitled Under the Tide (Chinese: 浪潮之下), received the first prize in a nationwide competition . Although I would say that was more a fluke, it still successfully conveyed an idea that I was trying to express. However, as I am unsatisfied with my writing skills, I have stopped writing for years. I hope to write something that can also encourage a kid like me in the future.
