About Me

I am a research fellow at NTU-WeBank Research Institute in Nanyang Technological University, working with Prof. Miao Chun Yan. I received my PhD degree from the South China University of Technology under the supervision of Prof. Mingkui Tan, where I also collaborated closely with Dr. Jiaxiang Wu and Dr. Peilin Zhao from Tencent AI Lab. My research interests are broadly in machine learning and mainly focus on:


  • Out-of-Distribution Generalization: Efficient Test-Time (Small/Large Vision/Vision-Language) Model Adaptation in the Open Real World.
  • Transfer Learning: Unsupervised/Semi-supervised/Continual/Source Data Free Domain Adaptation.
  • Automated Machine Learning: Neural Architecture Search, Discrete Optimization and Applications.
