Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
the courage to change the things I can,
and the wisdom to know the difference.
— Reinhold Niebuhr

About Me

I am currently finishing my PhD at the University of Ottawa, where I am very fortunate to have Prof. Yongyi Mao as my PhD advisor. In 2017-18, I was a Master of Applied Science (MASc) student at University of Ottawa. Prior to that, I received my B.E. degree in Electrical Engineering and its Automation from North China Electric Power University (NCEPU) in 2017. Previously, I was a research intern at National Research Council Canada (NRC) in Summer 2019 (full-time) and in Fall 2019 (part-time) where I was mentored by Dr. Harry H.Y. Guo.

My Erdős number is 4 (Wang -> Zhang -> Bhuiyan -> Hsu -> Erdős).

Research Interests

My research interests span the areas of machine learning and statistical learning theory. A common thread in my research is in understanding the generalization theory of deep learning through the lens of information theory. I am also interested in domain adaptation, online learning, reinforcement learning theory and trustworthy machine learning (e.g., privacy, fairness and robustness).
