I am currently a lead researcher at Huawei Noah's Ark Lab (AI Lab). Before that, I obtained my Ph.D. degree in Computer Science and Engineering from The Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2016, supervised by Prof. Michael R. Lyu. I received the B.Eng degree from Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications. My recent research focus is on building and applying practical machine learning algorithms (especially ranking, NLP and multimodal learning) for industrial-scale recommender systems, with a goal to help better discover users' interests and serve their needs. Our team has launched many self-designed ML algorithms on Huawei's products like News Feeds, Microvideo Stream, Music App, App Store, PPS Ads, etc.

I am always looking for students and interns who are interested in recommender systems, PLMs, or multimodal pretraining. Please feel free to reach out if you are interested!
