Zuobai Zhang 「张作柏」

I am a first-year PhD student at Mila - Québec AI Institute supervised by Prof. Jian Tang. Before that, I received my B.S. in Computer Science from Fudan University advised by Prof. Zhongzhi Zhang. I was also a machine learning engineering intern at ByteDance Inc., where I worked on recommender systems under the supervision of Yitan Li.
