I’m a third-year PhD student under the supervision of Dr. XU Weitao in Department of Computer Science, City University of Hong Kong. I’m a member of Smart Sensing and Mobile Computing Lab (S2MC). I also work closely with Dr. CAO Xuanyu (ECE in HKUST) and Dr. SONG Linqi (CS in CityU). My research interests include distributed optimization, machine learning and game theory. Prior to this I got my BEng and BEcon degree in Computer Science and Financial Engineering at the Sichuan University.

Recently, I am working on communication-efficient distributed optimization and decentralized optimization.

Next semester, I intend to work as an AI engineer intern at Huawei 2012 Lab.

News: My first paper (Adaptive Top-K in SGD for Communication-Efficient Distributed Learning) has been ACCEPTED for presentation at GLOBECOM 2023.
