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. I also work on explaining the model’s decision both visually and textually. In particular, we explore using textual resources (potentially other modalities of resources) for answering various types of visual questions, including commonsense questions and knowledge-based questions. We explored generating and utilizing captions and explanations for better VQA performance.
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
