I am a 2nd year PhD student at LMU Munich and Siemens AG, supervised by Prof. Volker Tresp. My research interests include Generative Multimodal Models and Responsible AI. I am also affiliated with MCML and relAI. Before that, I graduated from the Elite Master of Data Science with distinction at LMU Munich advised by Prof. Volker Tresp.

Before joining LMU, I graduated from the School of Information Management at Sun Yat-sen University (SYSU), Guangzhou, China, in 2020 with a major in Information Systems and a minor in Computer Science, advised by Prof. Daifeng Li.

I am actively seeking motivated students for research and thesis projects. If you’re interested in working with me, please apply by emailing your motivation letter, CV, and transcript. Due to a high volume of applications, my response may be delayed.
