About Me

I am currently a postdoctoral researcher in Whiteson Research Lab at University of Oxford. My PhD research mainly focuses on interactive machine learning, reinforcement learning, and curriculum learning. I have done some work on exploring how non-expert humans want to teach the agent to solve new complex sequential decision tasks and how to incorporate these insights into the development of new machine learning algorithms. I’m also interested in developing more sample efficient reinforcement learning algorithms. I received my doctorate from the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Washington State University in 2018, after working five years at the Intelligent Robot Learning Lab with my advisor Matthew E. Taylor. Before that, I worked as a front-end web developer in Tencent after receiving my Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from Huazhong University of Science and Technology in China in 2012.
