Hello there, I am currently a Postdoctoral Researcher in Intelligent Robot Learning Lab at the University of Alberta, advised by Matthew E. Taylor. I received my Ph.D. in the College of Intelligence and Computing from Tianjin University, supervised by Jianye Hao. I received my M.S. degree at Tianjin University in 2017 and B.E. degree at Tianjin University in 2014. My research interests focus on deep reinforcement learning (DRL) and multiagent systems. I have done some work on exploring how to facilitate efficient, scalable RL and multiagent RL through transfer learning, hierarchical RL, and opponent modeling. I am also involved with several projects including model-based reinforcement learning, exploration in RL and human-in-the-loop RL.
I am currently serving as a reviewer for JMLR, TPAMI, TMLR, IEEE TCDS and IEEE/CAA, a member of program committee (NeurIPS’2020,2021,2022,2023, AAAI’2021,2022,2023, ICLR’2021,2022,2023, IJCAI’2021,2022,2023, ICML’2021,2022,2023, UAI’2023, CoRL’2021,2022,2023, CIKM’2022, ECAI’2020, DAI’2019).
