I am an Assistant Professor in the Computer Science and Engineering Department of Mississippi State University. Before joining MS State in 2020, I have been working as a research assistant at Virginia Tech. I received an outstanding contribution award from Toyota Research North America in 2016. Currently, I am focusing on graph machine learning and its applications on spatial problems, circuit, molecule, etc.

Researchers/students sharing the same interests are welcome to contact me for collaborations [Openings].
