Hi! This is Daniel! I am currently a final-year PhD student in the Department of Computer Science & Engineering at University of Notre Dame under the supervision of Prof. Dong Wang. I got my master's degree in Information Security from Purdue University and I attained my bachelor's degree in Information Security Engineering from SJTU.

My research area lies in the intersection of machine learning/artificial intelligence, edge computing, and human-in-the-loop systems. My research topics include:

  • Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Data Science, Recommender Systems
  • Edge Computing, Federated Learning, Distributed Machine Learning, Edge Intelligence, Mobile Sensing, IoT
  • Human-AI Systems, Explainable AI, Crowdsourcing
  • I have published 42 peer-reviewed conference/journal papers, including 20 first-authored ones. These papers were published in both top machine learning and top systems venues such as AAAI, RTSS, INFOCOM, ICDCS, RTAS, SEC, IoTDI, KBS, BigData, ASONAM, etc. My H-Index is 11.

    I am the recipient of two of the most prestigious awards - Outstanding Graduate Research Award and Outstanding Graduate Teaching Award at University of Notre Dame.

    I have previously worked as a full-time Systems Engineer at Carfax, Inc., where I performed multiple tasks including database management, ETL pipelining, as well as front-end development. I worked in an Agile development team and performed test-driven development with 100% unit test coverage on production code.


    I will be joining Amazon Alexa @Boston as a Research Scientist, working on natural language understanding and intepreting human intent. Stay tuned!
