I am a PhD candidate at UBTECH Sydney AI Centre, School of Computer Science, the University of Sydney, supervised by Professor Dacheng Tao. I received M.Sc. degree from Tsinghua University, supervised by Associate Professor Bo Yuan.

My research focuses on developing intelligent learning algorithms to quickly adapt to and incorporate new and unseen information. I am interested in streaming label learning, meta-learning, multi-label learning, and transfer learning. My work is motivated by and can be applied to various real-world applications such as Streaming Media, Social Network, and Recommendation System.
