I am a Ph.D. student in Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) at MIT.

I work with Prof. Dina Katabi on wireless sensing. I develop algorithms, systems, and machine learning models to understand human motion patterns using wireless signals.

More recently, I also work with Prof. Piotr Indyk on using machine learning for algorithm design.

Before coming to MIT, I received my B.S. in Electrical Engineering from National Taiwan University (NTU), where I worked with Prof. Homer H. Chen and Prof. Chun-Ting Chou.
