My research area is in Machine Learning and Data Mining, Recommendation Systems and Information Retrieval, and Economics of Data Science. My recent research interest spans around the intersection of machine learning, IR, and computational economics. In particular, 1) Explainable Machine Learning algorithms for Recommendation and Search systems; 2) Economics of the Web – integrating and analyzing economic theories in web-based systems such as recommendation, search, and sharing economy; 3) Conversational search, recommendation, and QA sysetms based on interactive interfaces.
In the previous I was a postdoc in CIIR at UMass Amherst working with Prof. W. Bruce Croft, and did my PhD and BE in Computer Science at Tsinghua University, with a BS in Economics at Peking Univeristy. I am a Siebel Scholar of the class 2015, and a Baidu Scholar of the class 2014.
2018-03 We are organizing the 1st International Workshop on ExplainAble Recommendation and Search (EARS 2018) on July 12, to be co-located with SIGIR 2018 at Ann Arbor Michigan. For information and call for papers, please visit https://ears2018.github.io.
