I am a Ph.D. Candidate in the Dept. of Computer Science at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), working with Prof. Yizhou Sun and Prof. Wei Wang. Before joining UCLA as a Ph.D. student, I received my Bachelor's degree in Computer Science from the University of California, Berkeley, where I worked with Prof. John DeNero and Prof. David Weisblat.

My research interest lies in the intersection of machine learning and data mining, where I develop models for heterogeneous information networks. My research is generously supported by Amazon and NSF PhD Fellowship. I also serve as Co-President of UCLA's Computer Science Graduate Student Association (CS-GSA).

Research Interests

My research interests include graph neural networks, knowledge graphs, information retrieval (QA), and social networks.
