I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Singapore Management University (SMU), where I conduct research with Hady W. Lauw on Statistical Learning for Recommender Systems. More precisely, we are working on Probabilistic (Bayesian) modeling and representation learning for user preferences.
My research falls into the field of Statistical Learning. In particular, I am interested in mixture, mixed membership, latent factor, deep and hierarchical generative models. I am also interested in probabilistic approximate inference and learning. In practice, I usually deal with high dimensional sparse data, and our methods find their applications in recommender systems, text mining, word embedding, representation learning and related topics.
