Chunheng Jiang is a Computer Science PhD of RPI and a Rensselaer-IBM AIRC (Artificial Intelligence Research Collaboration) Research Extern. He will join Google as a Machine Learning Engineer in August of 2022. He has a solid background in Network/Graph Science and Deep Learning. Also, he is interested in information retrieval, recommendation, optimization and data visualization. He has involved in diverse projects ranging from network inference, machine learning, network control to airline/highway traffic congestion to nuclear reaction networks and boiling crisis in nuclear reactors. Their collaboration works have been published in high-quality conferences (AAAI, IJCAI) and journals (Scientific Reports, New Journal of Physics).
