Huan He, Postdoctoral fellow at University of Pennsylvania,

[Google Scholar][Curriculem Vitae]

I am on the academic job market 2023-2024! Please reach out to me if you find my expertise and research align with your department.

My current research includes but is not limited to the following topics:

  • Efficient training algorithms (e.g., parallel computing, optimization, numerical analysis)

  • Transfer learning (e.g., domain adaptation/generalization)

  • Trustworthy learning (e.g., short-cut learning, calibration, robustness)

  • Deep generative model for graph-structured data (e.g., transaction networks, social networks, 3D molecular conformation)


About me

I am a postdoctoral fellow at University of Pennsylvania, working with Professor Chen Yong, Previously, I spent a year Harvard Medical School, working with Prof. Marinka Zitnik. I got my Ph.D. in Computer Science at Emory University, under the guidance of Dr. Yuanzhe Xi and Joyce Ho. My research interests lie primarily in machine learning, and span the entire theory-to-application spectrum from foundational advances all the way to deployment in real systems. Recently, I am working on numerical methods for accelerating large-scale models (e.g., tensor decomposition, deep generative models, neural networks).
