I am a researcher at OpenAI, working on multimodal learning.

I did my postdoc at Meta AI / Facebook AI Research (FAIR), working with Yann LeCun on self-supervised visual representation learning. I obtained my PhD in physics from MIT, advised by Marin Soljacic. During my PhD, my research was on physics-inspired neural networks and AI for science. Previously, I received a BS in physics and a BA in economics from Peking University. I am a co-founder of Lightelligence Inc.
