I am with Alibaba Cloud now, leading a R&D team to develop distributed machine learning platform for large-scale learning tasks. Previously I was an associate research scientist of CCLS, Columbia University, a scientist of Yahoo! Labs, and then a principal scientist lead of Microsoft. Before I moved to US, I was a senior postdoctoral fellow of the Gatsby Computational Neuroscience Unit, University College London, working with Zoubin Ghahramani and David L. Wild on Machine Learning and Bioinformatics. I received Ph.D. degree at the Dept. of Mechanical Engineering, National University of Singapore, under the joint guidance of S. Sathiya Keerthi and Chong Jin Ong.
