Brief Bio

I am currently a Master's student at the Computer Science Department, Stanford University.

My research interest covers machine learning, especially deep learning, in which I seek innovation and inspiration from the essence of human being's intelligence. I also dabble in data mining, computer graphics and data visualization. I'm also interested in psychology and their neural basis. I participated in a number of course projects, research projects and real-world projects during my undergraduate study (see Undergraduate Projects).

The following is a selected version of my bio. (see also my resume)
