My research mainly focuses on machine learning problems in computational sustainability. My collaborators and I have applied various machine learning techniques to problems in the study of sustainability, especially ecosystem management. I include the following three projects in my thesis:

The third project is still ongoing. I have also participated in several other projects, such as Occupancy-Detection model with Boosted Regression Trees and spatial data fitting.

Future research: I will still focus on machine learning problems in computational sustainability. Particularly, I will focus on topics such as the impact of climate change on ecosystems and long-term ecosystem management. On the machine learning side, I will pay more attention to interactive machine learning robust decision-making.

Principle of my research: application-driven fundamental machine learning research.

I received my B.S. in computer science from Hebei University of Technology in 2006. After three years' study in LAMDA group, I received my M.S. from Nanjing Univeristy in 2009. My advisor was Prof. Yuan Jiang and Zhi-Hua Zhou. Then I worked in Alibaba for one year and a half. After that, I spent six years to finish my PhD at Oregon State University. My PhD advisor was Prof. Thomas Dietterich.
