I am a final year Ph.D. student in the Department of Computer Science at Rice University. My advisor is Prof. Xia Hu, who leads the DATA Lab and Rice and Rice D2K Lab. I obtained my bachelor’s degree from the Department of Automation, Tsinghua University, advised by Prof. Jiwen Lu.
My core research focus is in the realm of Trustworthy AI, a critical area that demands the infusion of trust throughout the AI lifecycle—from data acquisition and model development to deployment and user interaction. Within this overarching theme, I specialize in issues related to privacy, security, and explainability. Additionally, I collaborate closely with health informaticians from UTHealth and Baylor College of Medicine to deploy reliable AI for healthcare applications.
Recently, the emergence of Large Language Models (LLMs) like GPT-4, brings new and complex challenges to the trustworthiness of AI. My long-term objective is to develop computational regulatory frameworks for these generative AI systems to prevent potential misuse and ensure their responsible utilization.
I’m graduating in 2024 and am actively seeking a tenure-track faculty position.
