About Me ([GitHub] [Google Scholar] [Full Publications])

I am a third-year PhD candidate at School of Computer Science, University of Technology Sydney (UTS). My academic supervisor is Prof. Bogdan Gabrys. I received the bachelor's degree from School of Computer Science and Technology, Beihang University (BUAA) in 2016. My research interests included automated deep learning (AutoDL) and its application to real world problems. Ultimately, I hope my research can make AI create AI. My favorite three works are AutoHAS, PyGlove, and NATS-Bench.

My research was supported by Google PhD Fellowship (2019) and Baidu Scholarship (2020).
