This is Kaiyuan Zhang (张开元 | ), a Ph.D. student in Computer Science at Purdue University, fortunately advised by Prof. Xiangyu Zhang. My research interests focus on security in machine learning, especially graph-related domains.

Research Interests

  • Graph representation learning, Graph neural networks
  • Interpretable & trustworthy deep learning for graphs
  • Visual analytics of large-scale graphs

I received an M.S. in Computer Science from The University of Texas at Dallas in 2020, working with Prof. Wei Yang, and a B.E. in Network Engineering from Chang’an University in 2017. I have been very fortunate to work with a number of wonderful people. I was a visiting student at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, working with Prof. Tao Xie, Prof. Tianyin Xu and Prof. Jian Peng, and a full-time research intern at State Key Laboratory of CAD&CG, Zhejiang University, working with Prof. Wei Chen.
