Hi! I am a second-year master sutdent at the Center for Data Science of Peking University. I am a member of LANCO group, and I am fortunate to be advised by Prof. Xu Sun. I am interested in Machine Learning (ML) and Natural Language Processing (NLP). Recently I am working on adversarial learning and backdoor learning problems in NLP, and also federated machine learning problems (optimization & security).
