About Me

I am a final-year master student at ShanghaiTech University advised by Prof. Ziping Zhao. Previously, I received my B.Eng. degree from Wuhan University (WHU). During my undergraduate study, I spent a nice summer at City University of HongKong (CityU) as a visiting student.

My current research focuses on Graph Machine Learning and Optimization.

I am looking for a Ph.D. position starting from 2023 Fall. Please fell free to contact me!
