I completed my doctoral studies at The University of Sydney, where I studied under Prof. Tongliang Liu and Prof. Dacheng Tao. I worked as a postdoctoral fellow at Mohamed bin Zayed University of Artificial Intelligence and Carnegie Mellon University, collaborating with Prof. Tongliang Liu and Prof. Kun Zhang.

My goal is to make the machine learning systems to be reliable and aligned with human understanding. This includes the following directions: Targeting these challenges by combining rigorous theoretical frameworks with empirical insights is not only provide us with a clearer understanding of ML systems, but is necessary if we hope for ML to truly benefit society.
