I am a fifth year Ph.D. student at UTCS advised by Raymond J. Mooney. Before coming to UT Austin, I received my BEng. degree from the Department of Automation supervised by Prof. Xiangyang Ji at Tsinghua University in 2017.
My research focuses on commonsense reasoning and knowledge-based model in vision-language tasks, such as open-knowledge retrieval, question answering and explanation generation. In particular, I explore using external resources for answering various types of visual questions, including commonsense questions and knowledge-based questions. I also work on explaining the model’s decision both visually and textually and multi-modal knowledge retrieval projects.
I am also the organizer of UT XAI reading group.
I am actively looking for full-time opportunity starting summer/fall 2022 and my CV is here.
PhD in Artificial Intelligence, 2017 - present
BEng in Automation, 2013 - 2017
