Nan Liu

I am a MSCS student at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Previously, I graduated from University of Michigan, Ann Arbor with a bachelor's degree in Computer Science in 2021.

My current research is focused on generative models (i.e., energy-based models / diffusion models / score-based models). I am particularly interested in improving generalization ability of neural networks.
