Xingjun (Daniel) Ma

I am a research fellow at the School of Computing and Information Systems, The University of Melbourne, where I obtained my PhD in 2019. I work closely with Prof. James Bailey. Prior to my PhD, I recieved my M.Eng. and B.Eng. from Tsinghua University and Jilin University successively. I have a broad interest in theory and applications of machine learning and deep learning.

I am also very fortunate to have visited National Institute of Informatics, Japan invited by Prof. Michael E. Houle, and RIKEN, Japan by Dr. Bo Han, Dr. Gang Niu and Prof. Masashi Sugiyama.
