πŸ—Ώ Short Bio

Hi! My name is Liangze Jiang (πŸ‡¨πŸ‡³: ε§œθ‰―ζ³½). I’m a first-year PhD student in computer science at Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFLπŸ‡¨πŸ‡­), where I also did my Master’s and worked with Prof. Amir Zamir and Prof. Martin Jaggi. Previously, I worked as a student researcher at Google Research with Dr. Claudiu Musat and Dr. Pedro Gonnet. I got my Bachelor degree from University of Electronic Science and Technology of China (UESTC).

I had fun research experiences on robustness and generalization under distribution shifts, graph neural networks, federated learning, etc. I am now broadly interested in foundation models and transfer learning, as well as understanding their underlying dynamics & generalization empirically and theoretically. I am also excited about the advancements of AI in natural sciences.
