Yongchun Zhu 朱勇椿

I am a 4th-year PhD candidate under the supervision of Prof. Juan Cao and Prof. Fuzhen Zhuang at Institute of Computing Technology, Chinese Academy of Sciences (ICT, CAS). My research focuses on Machine Learning and Data Mining. In particular, I am working on Transfer Learning, Meta Learning, and their applications, including Recommender Systems, Fake News Detection, Image Classification.
