I am in constant lookout for self-motivated Ph.D. students with a strong mathematical and/or programming background. I might be slow in responding to unsolicited emails regarding openings. Nevertheless, if you have a strong background and think your research interests align with mine, feel free to contact me with your CV and transcript (for undergrad applicants).

About me

Hello, my name is Xuezhou (pronounce as syue-jhou). I am a tenure-track assistant professor in the Faculty of Computing and Data Sciences at the Boston University. Previously, I spent two wonderful years at Princeton University as a postdoctoral associate, working with Mengdi Wang. I obtained my Ph.D. of Computer Sciences in 2021 from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where I was fortunate to be advised by Jerry Zhu. I received my bachelor degree of Applied Mathematics in 2016 from UCLA.

Research interests

My research interest is in developing machine learning algorithms with strong theoretical and empirical performances, with a recent focus on

  • Online and Reinforcement Learning

  • Algorithmic Robustness against Biased and Noisy Data

  • Representation Learning

  • Human-in-the-loop Learning

  • Learning for Science
