About Me


I’m a PhD candidate at the University of Massachusetts. I am also a member of the Autonomous Learning Lab (ALL) and am fortunate to be advised by Prof. Philip Thomas. My primary interest is in continual learning, a branch of Artificial Intelligence, which aims at teaching machines new concepts over time. My research is mostly at the intersection of reinforcement learning and machine learning, with a focus on challenges of real-world applications. I enjoy reading and looking out for inspirations from neuroscience as well.
