About Me

Jie Wang is a Professor at University of Science and Technology of China (USTC). He received his BS in electronic information science and technology from USTC in 2005 and his PhD in computational science in 2011 from the Florida State University. Then, he went on to conduct his postdoctoral work at Arizona State University followed by the University of Michigan. Before joining USTC, Dr. Wang held a position of research assistant professor at University of Michigan from 2015. He has broad interests in artificial intelligence, machine learning, data mining, natural language processing, image processing, and large-scale optimization etc. He has published many papers on top machine learning and data mining journals and conferences such as JMLR, TPAMI, NIPS, ICML, and KDD. He is the PI of the research project funded by National Science Fund for Excellent Young Scholars.
