Xun Zhao (赵珣)

I am a Research Scientist at Shanghai AI Laboratory (shlab) working with Prof. Dahua Lin. I hold a Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from Hong Kong University of Science and Technology under the supervision of Prof. Huamin Qu. Prior to joining shlab, I worked at Tencent, and interned at Uber SF, MSRA and TuSimple.

My research interest lies in the broad field of Responsible AI, an interdisciplinary topic, which combines machine learning, human-computer interaction, computational social science and data visualization. Currently, I am particularly interested in enhancing the interpretability, safety, robustness, fairness and privacy of large language models.

NOTE: We are actively hiring motivated interns and joint-training PhD students. If you are enthusiastic about Responsible AI and wish to join us, contact me directly! [details]
