About Me.

Software Engineer & Researcher in Deep Learning.

Hello! My name is Chun-Mao Lai (賴群貿), and I am also known as Michael or Mecoli. My personal interests include playing piano, composing music, and building websites.
I am currently an undergraduate student in the Electrical Engineering (EE) Department at National Taiwan University (NTU) since 2020. My primary interest is in building user-friendly applications and integrating machine learning techniques to improve the quality of life.
My research interests mainly focus on Deep Learning, including Reinforcement Learning, Natural Language Progressing, and Computer Vision. During my undergraduate study, I have actively participated in several laboratories and research projects, including Robot Learning Lab, Machine Intelligence & Understanding Laboratory, and Speech Processing and Machine Learning Lab.
Fun Fact: 'Mecoli' is a playful fusion of Michael Lai's pronunciation and the name of the bacteria E.coli.
