I am a final year PhD candidate in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Arizona State University, Tempe, AZ. I am a research assistant at the Data Mining and Machine Learning Lab (DMML). My advisor is Professor Huan Liu. In general, my research lies in machine learning, data mining, social computing, and applications in disinformation, education, healthcare. My current interests include: (1) Data science for societal good: disinformation/fake news detection, user privacy, security; (2) Intelligent learning systems: interpretable, robust, fair; (3) Learning with limited and noisy data (weak supervision, data generation, meta learning, few-shot learning); (4) Representation Learning: feature learning for text/image/network, multi-modality fusion, domain adaptation.
I am actively looking for self-motivated PhD students to conduct research in the area of data mining, machine learning and social media mining. Interested students please feel free to drop me an email with your CV and transcript.
