Bio

My first paid job was an eSports player. People said that didn't count as a job, so I went to business school and studied accounting and finance. I used to think that I would be one of the suits and work in a bank. Embarrassingly, I end up coding everyday. There must be something wrong, I guess.

I'm a machine learning researcher (a casual one). Broadly speaking, I'm interested in two topics: (i) how can we check or guarantee the sanity in the model’s predictions; (ii) how can we improve the sample efficiency by leveraging previous experience.

I did some research in machine learning (e.g., transfer learning, domain adaptation, and multi-task learning), with applications to computer vision, physics, and finance. Recently, I started doing some work in meta-learning.
