Aochuan Chen

PhD Student at Michigan State University


Room 3210

East Lansing, Michigan

I am Aochuan Chen, a first-year Ph.D. student from OPTML Group at Michigan State University, supervised by Prof. Sijia Liu. My primary area of interest and the focal point of my research is centered around the development and improvement of scalable and trustworthy machine learning algorithms. These are integral to handle the ever-increasing size of datasets and ensure that our models are not only efficient but also reliable and interpretable.

I originate from Sichuan, China, which I consider to be the finest location on Earth. Being a proud Sichuanese, I hold a deep affection for my accent and am eager to assist my friends in exploring the captivating aspects of Sichuanese culture. I warmly invite you to join me for a Sichuanese language practice session.
