What are the specifics of your graduate education (thus far)?

My PhD program started in the spring of 2015. Currently, I am taking PhD required courses. Besides, I have been involved in a Multi-label classification problem of machine learning area for more than half year.

What are your research interests?

My undergraduate major was software engineering, which is to design, implement and maintain programs to solve the problems in general. To further improve myself, my PhD research focuses more on a particular area: machine learning/document classification.

As before, I apply the same idea as a software developer and try to design, implement, and test machine learning models to solve real-world problems.

What’s one problem you’d like to solve with your research/work?

Currently, I am working on a Multi-label classification problem, which is also the one I want to solve.

What aspect of what you do is most interesting?

For the current Multi-label problem, we came up with a very simple idea, but it works much better than most existing methods.

What are your research or career goals, going forward?

Since data is becoming more and more valuable, I hope to use machine learning to make data even more valuable.
