Dr. Jiang joined the faculty in computer science at the University of Alabama in 2016. Before that, he received Ph.D. in computer science from the University of Minnesota (under Prof. Shashi Shekhar), and B.E. in Electrical Engineering and Information Science from the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC).
Data mining, machine learning, deep learning, spatiotemporal data mining, interpretability, interdisciplinary applications in earth science, transportation, public health, etc.
Our lab is looking for outstanding Ph.D. students starting in Fall 2021! We also welcome visiting students and scholars. Please click this link.
