I’m currently a third-year computer science PhD student at Hunan University, advised by Associate Prof. Zhe Quan. Now, I’m also a visiting scholar in BDSC Lab at University of Illinois at Chicago, advised by Prof. Philip S. Yu. My research generally focuses on:

  • Machine Learning
  • Graph Neural Networks, Knowledge Graph
  • Bioinformatics
