I am a data scientist at Netflix. I completed my Ph.D. in the Electrical Engineering Department at Columbia University, as part of the LabROSA, working with Professor Dan Ellis and Professor David Blei. My CV is available here, as of July 2017. Prior to that, I completed my master's degree in Music and Technology program at Carnegie Mellon University, working with Professor Roger Dannenberg in the School of Computer Science, where I was part of the Computer Music Group. I received my bachelor's degree in Computer Science at Fudan University.

Teaching

Miscellaneous

Here are some notes regarding some topics I found interesting. I wrote these just for fun (and I think they will be useful sometime in the future). Therefore, there might be mistakes/errors in these notes. If you find any problem, please let me know.
