張 一凡 チョウ イーファン

Hi, this is Yivan! I’m a Ph.D. student supervised by Prof. Masashi Sugiyama at the University of Tokyo. Here is my CV.

My research interest lies in theory and application of machine learning, especially those abstract and fundamental problems that can be instantiated in seemingly different fields. My current focus is the case where the data we have and the task we want to solve do not match, including:

  • Weakly supervised learning
  • Representation learning
  • Domain adaptation/generalization

I don’t want to invent something. I want to discover something.

My research is generously supported by RIKEN Center for Advanced Intelligence Project and Microsoft Research Asia.
