I am a senior researcher and the tech lead for federated learning at Huawei Noah Ark's Lab in Montréal. I obtained my Ph.D [thesis] from the David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science at the University of Waterloo, also as a student affiliate of the Vector Institute. My PhD supervisors were Prof. Pascal Poupart and Prof. Yaoliang Yu. My current research focus is on federated learning and representation learning. I obtained my master from the Perimeter Institute, and I was fortunate to work with Prof. Freddy Cachazo on theoretical physics.

Research Interests: foundation models, transfer learning, federated learning

Hiring: If you are interested in internship or contract positions on LLMs or embodied AI at Huawei Noah's Ark Lab Montréal, send your resume to my Huawei email.

I like writing poems, reading, working out and traveling. I enjoy exploring different cultures. For example, I like visiting ancient churches all over the world. Japanese culture is also one of my favorites. Life is like sakura, short with beauty.
