I am now a first-year Ph.D. student at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, advised by Professor Tong Zhang. I received my Master of Philosophy degree at HKUST in 2021. Before joining HKUST, I received my Bachelor of Science degree at Beijing Normal University in 2019. I am now a research intern at ByteDance AI Lab with Dr. Hang Li and Dr. Xinsong Zhang. During my undergraduate study, I interned at WING Group @ NUS and PKU, where I was fortunate to work with Prof. Min-Yen Kan and Prof. Xiaojun Wan. My research focuses on pretraining and adaptation of large language models.
