I'm a researcher at ByteDance Research in Mountain View, CA. I do research in trustworthy (responsible) AI, i.e. machine learning security, privacy, fairness, and interpretability with a recent focus on large language model.

I got Ph.D. in Computer Science from University of Chicago, advised by Prof. Ben Zhao and Prof. Heather Zheng. Previously I got three B.S. degrees in Computer Science, Mathematics, and Statistics from University of Minnesota-Twin Cities.

I interned at Google and received Siebel Scholarship. My work is covered by a number of mainstream media outlets, e.g. WIRED, Business Insider, Scientific American, Forbes, Fortune, The Verge, Engadget, New York Post, and Nvidia etc.

I sometimes write for my own pleasure.
