About me

I enjoy taking the latest and greatest technological innovation and creating products that provide tangible value for the user. Leveraging my deep roots in science and research, I work on revolutionary products that solves people’s real day-to-day need. I am currently managing the Clinc AI Platform, the world’s most sophisticated conversational AI platform, where I am taking the latest innovation in Natural Language Processing (NLP) and productizing as toolsets, enabling anyone to build the most natural and “human-in-the-room” conversational AI experience. The Clinc AI Platform is now serving more than 7 million users worldwide.

Before joining Clinc, I earned my Ph.D. from University of Michigan, working with Professors Lingjia Tang and Jason Mars. My research focus on hardware and software system design for emerging intelligent applications, such as Apple Siri and Amazon Alexa. Through identifying the various inefficiencies exist across the system layer, in both the hardware system design and the machine learning model training process, I designed and implemented optimization techniques to improve software system performance and machine learning performance, in the interests of providing a more natural and responsive end-user experience.
