About Me

I'm a fifth-year Ph.D. student in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Michigan State University. I am fortunately advised by Prof. Jiliang Tang in the Data Science and Engineering Lab, and I also work closely with Prof. Ming Yan from Department of Computational Mathematics, Science and Engineering (CMSE). Before that, I received both of my bachelor and master degree from South China University of Technology.

My research interests are machine learning and optimization, especially large-scale distributed optimization, robust and secure machine leaning, and machine learning on graphs.

I will be a tenure-track Assistant Professor of Computer Science at North Carolina State University (NCSU) starting from Fall 2022. If you are interested in working with me, please feel free to contact me.
