Hello, this is

Xiaohan Zou (邹笑寒).

I do machine learning by day and build things for the web by night.


I am a Ph.D. student in the Computer Science and Engineering Department at Pennsylvania State University advised by Prof. Huijuan Xu. My current research interests primarily focus on understanding and enhancing the generalizability, efficiency, robustness, and other crucial aspects of machine learning. I am also interested in large multimodal models.

Previously, I received my master’s degree in Computer Science from Boston University and my bachelor’s degree in Software Engineering from Tongji University. I also interned at Kuaishou and PKU.

By the way, take a look at some things I’ve built as a web developer, featuring ohmycv.app - a sleek, privacy-first online resume builder.
