After spending two-year wonderful time at Baidu Research, I joined Facebook in Oct 2018 as a research engineer. My general interests are reinforcement learning, natural language processing, and artificial general intelligence.

My PhD research was learning to ground language in realistic video data. I received the degree in Computer Engineering from Purdue University in 2016.
