Jiannan Xiang

I am a first-year PhD student at University of California, San Diego, under the supervision of Prof. Zhiting Hu. Previously, I got my Master's degree from Machine Learning Department at Carnegie Mellon University, and my Bachelor's degree in Electronic Information Engineering from University of Science and Technology of China.

I am actively looking for research internship opportunities for 2024 summer.
