Research Summary

My primary interest is deep representation learning, including 1) fair representation learning; 2) self-supervised learning; and 3) multimodal learning.

Research Topics

Primary: self-supervised learning, multimodal learning (vision, speech and text), and fairness.
Secondary: unsupervised learning, contrastive learning, domain adaptation, visual recognition, speech recognition, time-series analysis, sentiment analysis, interpretable models, variational inference, causal inference, mutual information.

About Me

I am currently a M.S. student in School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University, where I am supervised by Dr. Louis-Philippe Morency and Dr. Ruslan Salakhutdinov. I also work with Dr. Kun Zhang. Previously, I studied at Brandeis University where I was supervised by Dr. Pengyu Hong.
