📚 My Research

I am currently a Ph.D. student at the University of Houston, with my primary research areas including:

  • Time Series Models: This includes forecasting time series and detecting anomalies in long sequences. My data sources span various fields such as energy, healthcare, transportation, and finance.

  • Large Language Models (LLMs): I have a strong interest in the generative capabilities of LLMs and aim to extend their applications beyond language, achieving unification across more modalities.

  • Machine Learning: Using machine learning algorithms to make more predictions and inferences on complex data.

I hope that my research on time series can help us better predict the future, and by applying new algorithms to different industrial fields, drive the development of various industries.

🎉 Graduated from Sichuan Agricultural University

The sudden outbreak of the pandemic in 2020 and the delayed college entrance exam caught everyone off guard. As a newly turned adult, I found myself swept along by the tide, ending up in a place I had never imagined: Ya’an, Sichuan - Sichuan Agricultural University.

🚀 A Brand New Personal Homepage!

In the upcoming Fall of 2024, I will be completing my undergraduate studies and beginning my Ph.D. journey. To better present my academic experience and personal information, I have used Hugo to create a new personal homepage (which is the page you are currently viewing)!
