Position: PhD Student at KU and Novo Nordisk
Categories: Computer Science, Mathematics
Location: Copenhagen, Frederiksberg, and vicinity (1000-2999)


I am currently a PhD student at the University of Copenhagen (Department of Computer Science) and Novo Nordisk A/S (Biotech and Rare Disease), where my project is about using reinforcement learning to control pharmaceutical production. Before coming to Denmark, I completed my master’s degree in AI at the University of Amsterdam and my master’s degree in statistics at Columbia University. Before that, I studied statistics at Jinan University in China.


During my journey in AI and data science, I have been benefiting a lot from many friends, colleagues, and mentors, and now with a bit more experience than I used to, I would like to contribute back to the community.
