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

I am a research scientist at Google Brain. I received a Ph.D. degree from the School of Computer Science, University of Technology Sydney (UTS). My research interests included automated deep learning (AutoDL) and its application to real world problems. In the past, I was fortunate to work at Google, Facebook, Amazon, Microsoft, UTS, etc.
