Quanquan Gu

Assistant Professor

I am an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at the University of Virginia. I am also an affiliated faculty member in the Data Science Institute at UVa. My research is in statistical machine learning, with a focus on developing robust, adaptive and efficient machine learning, data mining and optimization algorithms with provable guarantee to understand large-scale, dynamic, complex and heterogeneous data in social and information networks, neuroscience and genomics. I am leading the Statistical Machine Learning Lab. Before I joined UVa, I was a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Department of Operations Research and Financial Engineering at Princeton University. I received my Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2014.

I am very fortunate to have received a couple of awards for my work, including NSF CAREER Award in 2017, and Yahoo! Academic Career Enhancement Award in 2015. Here is my latest CV.
