All models are wrong, 
                                                But some are useful.

Hello! My name is Yifan Xu   
I'm a first-year Ph.D. student at UCSD

As a student researcher, I am interested in fundamental problems related to artificial intelligence, including natural language processing, computer vision, and reinforcement learning.

I'm privileged to work with professor Zhuowen Tu. Currently, an emphasis of my research rests on language modeling and visual reasoning. Tasks depend heavily on reinforcement learning.

If you are a current UCSD undergraduate student (2nd-year is preferred) who likes the research direction of the mlPC lab and is interested in joining our group, please check the admission requirements in mlPC  Research Guideline.
