Hengrui Zhang

I am a second year Ph.D. student in Computer Science at Univeristy of Illinois, Chicago. My advisor is Philip S. Yu.

Before that, I received my bachelor's degree from Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU).

Research Topics

  • I'm interested in a general topic of machine learning and deep learning on graph data, e.g. Graph Neural Networks.
  • Currently I am actively working on designing effective, efficient and scalable self-supervised methods for unsupervised representation learning on graph-structured data.
