I’m a 2nd-year Ph.D. student of information systems and machine learning in Heinz College at Carnegie Mellon University, advised by Prof. Leman Akoglu. My research mainly focuses on developing machine learning algorithms over graph-structured data, and applying designed algorithm to solve real-world problems.

I finished my Master’s in ECE department at Carnegie Mellon Univrsity, and Bachelor’s (while I was in power system area) in EE department at Xi’an Jiaotong University.

I have a twin brother Lingfei Zhao pursuing his Ph.D. of Physics at Duke University. We enjoy games together :).
