Huang Xu 胥皇

I am a PhD student from Northwestern Polytechnical University. I was supported by China Scholarship Council as a Visiting Scholar at Rutgers-the State University of New Jersey under advisory of Professor Hui Xiong from 2015 to 2017. My research interests are data mining and machine learning. I have been mainly focusing on mining of human resource data during my Ph.D. Some of my research work have been published on SIGKDD, IJCAI, ICDM and THMS.

My research interests are data mining and machine learning.
