Hey, my name is Chen Luo, a Ph.D. student at Rice, working with Anshumali Shrivastava. Before comming to Rice, I was a master student in Key Laboratory of Symbolic Computation and Knowledge Engineering, Jilin University. I recieved my B.S degree from the Department of Computer Science, Jilin University.

I enjoy coding as well as reading research papers. I still wonder if I am a scientist, an engineer or just a student. :-)


I do research for fun and my interests change more frequently than Houston weather. Currently, I am mainly working on applied machine learning: locality-sensitive hashing, social network analysis, time series analysis, transfer learning, recommender systems, and semi-supervised learning.
