About Me

I am currently a senior researcher at Microsoft Research Asia (MSRA), Machine Learning Group, headed by Prof. Tie-Yan Liu. I received my Ph.D. degree from Institute for Interdisciplinary Information Sciences (IIIS) at Tsinghua University in 2018, under the supervision of Prof. Jian Li. Before that, I received the B. Sc degree from Department of Computer Science at Wuhan University in 2013.

I have a wide range of research interests on applied machine learning, including Time Series Forecasting, Intelligent Health-Care, Logistics Optimization etc. In the past years, we co-worked with many leading companies in various fields to explore the opportunities of AI in the corresponding scenarios, including China-AMC, Shunfeng Tech, Humana and Sanofi, etc.

HIRING: I am seeking for self-motived interns who have interests on time series, tabular data and autoML. Feel free to contact me if you are interested.

We propose HierST, a hierarchical graph neural network for COVID situation forecasting. The forecasting results could be found on US-CDC website (model name: Microsoft)


I am a big fan of sports (as well as my cute wife 😄), especially the cycling. I am a member of Tsinghua Cycling Club. You can find my strava here.
