I am a first-year M.S. student at the Computer Science Department in UC San Diego. My research interest focuses on robotics, machine learning, and computer vision. I received my B.S. in Cognitive Science (computation) and Physics (Biophysics) in UC San Diego, 2017.

I have always been curious about the brain and the cognition, and I hope that by conducting research related to artificial intelligence/machine learning, computational neuroscience, and brain-computer interfaces would eventually help us decipher what minds are. Since cognitive science is a broad field, hopefully gaining knowledge from other disciplines can be inspiring. I am also counting on a more powerful quantum computer in the future, when combined with some new algorithms, will make artificial intelligence becomes true. Apart from that, I wish that I can learn more about the universe, physics, and math.
