Adam Iou-Jen Liu

I am a PhD student in Electrical and Computer Engineering at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I work with Professor Alexander Schwing on Deep Reinforcement Learning. I received my master and bachelor degree, both in EE, from National Taiwan University (NTU), Taiwan. In NTU, I worked with Professor Yao-Wen Chang on Electronic Design Automation (EDA).
