Brief Biography

I am a machine learning researcher with research interests in reliable machine learning and weakly supervised learning. I am currently a professor at College of Computer Science, Chongqing University, China and a visiting scientist at Imperfect Information Learning Team, RIKEN Center for Advanced Intelligence Project, Japan. I received my Ph.D. degree from School of Computer Science and Engineering, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, in 2021, supervised by Prof. Bo An. I was a research intern at Imperfect Information Learning Team, RIKEN Center for Advanced Intelligence Project, supervised by Prof. Masashi Sugiyama and Dr. Gang Niu. Before my Ph.D. study, I received my B.E. degree from College of Computer and Information Science, Southwest University, China, in 2017.
