University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Advisor: Professor Yizhou Sun

Shichang Zhang is a fourth-year Ph.D. student in Computer Science at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) working with Professor Yizhou Sun.

Shichang's research interest lies in the development of efficient and explainable machine learning models, especially for graph-structured data. His primary research objective is to make large and black-box machine learning models accessible and trustworthy. He has specifically focused on accelerating and explaining graph neural networks with applications in large-scale online classification, efficient and explainable recommendation systems, and reliable drug discovery.

Before joining UCLA, Shichang received his B.A. in Statistics from the University of California, Berkeley, and his M.S. in Statistics from Stanford University.
