mind and universe in Atlantean language

I am an associate professor of computer science at Fudan University and a member of Fudan Vision and Learning Lab. I am also an honorary fellow at The University of Melbourne. My main research area is Trustworthy AI, aiming to develop secure, robust, explainable, privacy-preserving, and fair learning algorithms and AI models for different applications. I am also passionate about using AI to expand understandings of our mind and the universe.

I received my Ph.D. degree from The University of Melbourne and spent another 2 wonderful years as a postdoctoral research fellow. I worked for 1.5 years at Deakin University as a lecturer before joining Fudan University. I obtained my bachelor's and master's degrees from Jilin University and Tsinghua University, respectively.

We are looking for motivated students, postdocs, and interns in the field of Trustworthy AI, Multimodal Learning, Reinforcement Learning, and Generative AI to join our team. Drop me an email if you are interested.  

I am teaching a graduate level course Trustworthy Machine Learning and an introductory course Artificial Intelligence dedicated for high school students.
We are also writing an AI Security book Artificial Intelligence - Data and Model Security in Chinese.
