I'm an Associate Professor of the College of Computer Science and Technology at Zhejiang University. I got my Ph.D. in the Department of Computer Science and Technology at Tsinghua University in 2019, coadvised by Prof. Shiqiang Yang and Prof. Peng Cui. From Sep. 2017 to Sep. 2018, I visited Prof. Susan Athey's group at Stanford University as a visiting student. I am also lucky to work with Prof. Bo Li and Prof. Wenwu Zhu at Tsinghua University.

Research Interests

My research interests include causal inference, machine learning, and data mining. In particular, I am interested in promoting the convergence of causal inference and machine learning, including improving the effectiveness of causal inference with machine learning technologies, and bringing stability and interpretability of machine learning with causal inference technologies.

We are always actively recruiting highly motivated Postdocs, Ph.D. students and Interns! If interested, please contact me with your detailed CV!
