I am Jiong (煚), a Ph.D. student in Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Michigan working with Danai Koutra. My research interest is on Graph Convolutional Network (GCN).

I was a Master’s student in Electrical and Computer Engineering at UM. Before joining UM, I received my bachelor degree at Xi’an Jiaotong University, where I was a student of the Special Class for the Gifted Young.

Apart from my study, I am a savvy tech user and a go-to friend for coding and tech questions.
