I've always been excited about real-world applications in industry. I interned at DiDi Research for 9 months working with Dr. Pinghua Gong and Prof. Jieping Ye on building online and offline models for carpooling recommendation, payment habits prediction and subsidy optimization. I also interned at Microsoft Asia-Pacific Research & Development Group as an intern working on integrating knowledge-based question answering methods into Microsoft's chatbot - XiaoIce. Supervised by Yue Liu, I also work with Dr. Nan Duan in MSRA on end-to-end answer prediction.

Last year, I had an exciting internship in Hangzhou City Brain Research with my advisor, working on intelligent transportation, epscially using reinforcement learning for traffic signal control.
