Southeast University


I am currently an associate professor with the school of Computer Science and Engineering, Southeast University, China. Before joining SEU, I was a research fellow for three years at the University of South Australia. I received my Ph.D. degree from the school of Information Technology and Mathematical Science, University of South Australia, in 2018 and the M.Sc. degree from the department of Computer Science and Technology, Nanjing University, in 2014. My undergraduate study was also completed at Nanjing University, in the department of Mathematics.

My main research interests are causal inference and machine learning, including topics on causal effect estimation, weakly-supervised learning, and causality-based learning.
