Wanyu is a research assistant professor in the Department of Computing at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University.

Wanyu’s main research interest is in developing machine learning algorithms for graph-structured data. Currently, her research activities focus on model explanations for graph neural networks and trustworthy machine learning. Wanyu’s methods of graph representation learning have been applied to various fields, such as computer vision and social networks.

Wanyu enjoys reading, singing, and jogging in her leisure time. She also loves to visit new places, meet new friends, and explore nature.

We are looking for motivated Post-doctoral Fellows, Research Assistants, and Ph.D. Students who are interested and experienced in responsible machine learning (interpretability, privacy, fairness, robustness, etc.) and general graph machine learning. Send me your CV (GPA, publications, etc.) and your transcript via email if you are interested in working with me at PolyU. Candidates who have strong mathematics backgrounds and programming skills are preferred.
