# About Me

### Short Bio

I graduated *Magna Cum Laude* from Princeton University in 2019 with a B.S.E in computer science. I am currently an Applied Scientist at Amazon Prime Video where I do research in video understanding and multimodal representation learning, with an emphasis on self-supervised approaches. I am passionate about advancing the state-of-the-art, publishing my work, and translating research to solve real-world problems. I envision a future where computers are capable of human-like perception and visual reasoning.

I am fluent in English and Mandarin Chinese. My hobbies include tennis, ping pong, clarinet, nature walks, hacking, and writing.
