I am an CS Ph.D student @ CUHK starting Aug 2023, supervised by Prof.Yu Li.

I obtained B.Eng in Artificial Intelligence and information security in the University of Science and Technology of China. I am affiliated with the School of the Gifted Young, which originates from the first undergraduate program for special young talents in China.

My research interests include Foundation Models for Science (esp. Biology and Healthcare) and Large Language Models (LLM) .
