I am looking for Ph.D. students who are interested in pursuing Data Science and Machine Learning research, especially Trustworthy Machine Learning (including explainability, fairness, robustness, and other directions mentioned in our HCAI website). I’m also interested about the intersection of trustworthy machine learning and other directions (e.g., NLP and healthcare). Also, self-funded visiting students/scholars are welcome to apply.

Applications: Students from Computer Science/Software Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Statistics, Mathematics, Physics or other related disciplines are strongly encouraged to apply! Students from other disciplines, but showing strong interests, creativity and learning initiatives, are also welcome to apply! If you are interested in the positions, please feel free to contact me at dumengnan@gmail.com. Here are some suggestions in preparing the email:
