Hi! I am a PhD student at the Department of Computer Science, University of Virginia. I am fortunate to work with my advisor, Prof. Vicente Ordóñez Román. Before coming to UVa, I obtained my bachelor degree in computer science from Zhejiang University, China. I have a broad interest in exploring topics concerning fairness, robustness and accountability in machine learning models, especially in computer vision and natural language processing systems.
