I’m looking for highly motivated students who have strong background in machine learning and deep learning, with full financial support. Interested candidates are strongly encouraged to contact me via email, together with resume included publication list and transcripts.
I am an Assistant Professor in Department of Computer Science at Drexel University. I obtained my Ph.D. degree at Northeastern University in 2021 advised by Prof. Xue (Shelley) Lin. My primary research interest is the robustness of machine learning, including physical adversarial attacks, rigorous robustness verification and certified defenses. My research papers are published in various top conferences such as, NeurIPS, ICML, ICLR, IJCAI, AAAI, CVPR, ECCV, ICCV, etc. Previously to Northeastern University, I obtained my M.S. and B.S. degree from the Department of Computer Science at University of Florida in 2017 and Sichuan University in 2015 respectively.
