My  research focuses on developing and analyzing state-of-the-art reinforcement learning (RL) methods for application to video games. Currently, I am working on projects to build effective game AI with RL that scales up existing methods for cooperative multi-agent RL. I also study game AI that can transfer effectively to new scenarios, such as new game levels and versions, without having to learn from scratch.

I am a postdoctoral researcher at Oxford University (jointly with Microsoft Research Cambridge), working closely with Shimon Whiteson and Katja Hofmann. Before joining Microsoft, I obtained my PhD degree in Computer Science and Engineering from Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, and bachelor degree in Electronic Engineering and Information Science from University of Science and Technology of China.
