I am a final year Ph.D. student supervised by Dr. Li Chen in the Department of Computer Science, Hong Kong Baptist University. Besides my supervisor, I am very fortunate to have the opportunity of doing research with Dr. Yongfeng Zhang and Dr. Ruihai Dong. Under their guidance, I have been working on the topic of explainable recommendation, or more broadly explainable artificial intelligence.

Previously, I received my double bachelor's degrees in computer science and mathematics with the outstanding graduate honor from a special program of the College of Computer Science and Software Engineering, Shenzhen University, where I systematically studied recommender systems and information retrieval, under the supervision of Dr. Weike Pan.
