Yu Shi

I am a fourth-year Ph.D. student in Computer Science at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign under the supervision of Professor Jiawei Han. My research interest mainly lies in data mining and machine learning with a focus on interpreting and modeling typed network/graph data.

Before joining UIUC, I obtained my bachelor's degree from Hua Loo-Keng Talent Program in Mathematics at University of Science and Technology of China. I have also spent summers interning at LinkedIn and Snap Research.
