About MeI am currently a first year PhD student under the supervision of Prof. Nitesh V. Chawla at the Interdisciplinary Center for Network Science and Applications (iCeNSA) in University of Notre Dame. Before that, I received M.S. degree and B.E. degree from Rutgers University and University of Electronic Science and Technology of China, respectively. I am interested in data mining, applied machine learning and deep learning for applications in information/social networks and recommendation. I also work closely with Prof. Xiangliang Zhang in KAUST. During my undergraduate study, I worked with Prof. Tao Zhou and Prof. Zike Zhang on the study of complex networks at Web Science Center (now CompleX Lab) of UESTC.
