Ph.D. in Computer Science

Texas A&M University

In Texas A&M University, I am not in any student organization or club. I am devoting all my energy into research. During my study, I developed AutoKeras, which became the official AutoML API of Keras. I am getting involved in the open-source community on GitHub, and contributed code to Tensorflow and Keras.
