University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign
I am an Assistant Professor in the School of Information Sciences, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. Prior to UIUC, I was a Postdoctoral Researcher at Harvard University. I received my Ph.D. degree from University of Michigan and a B.Eng. degree from Tsinghua University.
I’m generally interested in understanding and improving machine learning (ML) for complex real-world data (e.g., graphs, rankings, partially observed data), under different contexts (e.g., distribution shift), from various aspects (e.g., accuracy, efficiency, robustness, fairness). I’m particularly interested in scenarios where humans are involved. Some “buzzwords” relevant to my existing research include trustworthy ML, graph ML, and recommender systems. I’m also dipping into explainable ML and NLP.
