I am a Senior Researcher working at Borealis AI, (an RBC Institute for Research) at Toronto, ON, Canada. I am interested in a wide range of topics of related to machine learning and artificial intelligence. Currently I work on machine learning problems at RBC and research adversarial robustness of machine learning models.

Brief Bio

Before joining Borealis AI, I was an Artificial Intelligence Researcher at Kindred AI , where I worked on robotics and machine learning.

I was a research scientist (January 2014 to April 2015) working with Dr. Graham Taylor in School of Engineering, University of Guelph, Canada. There, I worked on deep learning and representation learning.

I got my Master of Applied Science degree from School of Engineering Science at Simon Fraser University (Burnaby, BC, Canada). I worked on medical image analysis with Dr. Mirza Faisal Beg. At SFU, I worked on 2 projects: 1) analysis of spatial-temporal zebrafish heart optical mapping data; 2) automated detection of retinal fluids from OCT images.

I got my Bachelor of Engineering degree from School of Advanced Engineering (academic talent program) at Beihang University (Beijing, China), where I studied Automation, specifically, flight control system.

I spent nearly 20 years at Handan, Hebei, China (河北, 邯郸) before college.
