I am an associate professor (tenured) at the Department of Computer Science , University of Virginia. Please feel free to call me "Jane", "Yanjun", "Professor Qi" or "Dr. Qi". In 2021, I am part of the National Scholar Program in National Institute of Health, NIA Program.

My team focuses on four major research fronts:

  • 1. Our deep learning tools on representation learning of discrete data types
  • 2. Our algorithmic tools for making deep learning robust and trustworthy
  • 3. Our deep learning tools on data analysis in bio-medicine
  • 4. Our graph learning tools for extracting networks from heterogeneous samples.

What is New in My Group ?

To new graduate students, if you are interested in joining my group, please take CS 6316 and learn well there.
For Prospective Students: I am actively looking for highly motivated and qualified Ph.D. students who are interested in machine learning and biomed-data analytics. Please email me your resume if interested.
