I indulged most of my childhood watching old Japanese sci-fi anime like A Farewell to Weapons and Ghost in the Shell in Beijing, my hometown. When I came to the United States at the age of 15, I became excited about the field of artificial intelligence from online communities like Kaggle. I was fortunate to study computer science at Carnegie Mellon University, where I learned rigorous problem-solving skills in computing. I’m interested in creating autonomous machines and studying how they may benefit us. I'm a member of the CMU automated learning systems group (Catalyst) and Recurse Center. I'm currently working on Praxis, the end-to-end platform for time-series workflows that focuses on investigative visualization tools, backtesting, and external data feeds.

Philosophy, if it cannot answer so many questions as we could wish, has at least the power of asking questions which increase the interest of the world, and show the strangeness and wonder lying just below the surface even in the commonest things of daily life.

︎ Bertrand Russell, from The Problems of Philosophy, 1912


...the sun shone
As it had to on the white legs disappearing into the green
Water, and the expensive delicate ship that must have seen
Something amazing, a boy falling out of the sky,
Had somewhere to get to and sailed calmly on.


︎ W. H. Auden, from Musée des Beaux Arts, 1939

I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past, I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

︎ Frank Herbert, from Dune, 1965


I've seen things you people wouldn't believe...
Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion...
I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate.
All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain...
Time to die.

︎ Ridley Scott, from Blade Runner, 1982
