Dongyue (Oliver) Li

I am a Ph.D. Student in the Khoury College of Computer Science at Northeastern University starting from Fall 2021. I am fortunate to work with Professor Hongyang R. Zhang.

I obtained my bachelor degree from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Shanghai Jiao Tong University. I was a member of the IEEE honor class, an elite student program in the School of Electronics, Information and Electrical Engineering.

My undergraduate major was Computer Science with a special track for Artificial Intelligence. I also took Mathematics and Applied Mathematics as a second major in the School of Mathematical Science.

Research Interest

I am broadly interested in the machine learning field. Currently, I am focusing on practical designs of machine learning algorithms in two exciting directions: (i) building learning algorithms when only a limited amount of data is available. (ii) building learning algorithms that can generalize to distributionally different tasks. These areas span transfer learning, weakly-supervised learning, multi-task learning, meta-learning, and data augmentation. I am also interested in the generalization theory of deep learning, network analysis, and system co-design.

I am a big tennis fan. My favorite player is Simona Halep from Romania. She won the Wimbledon Champion of women's single 2019! I love playing tennis, swimming, and working out in the gym.

I like photographing, editing music, and watching stand-up comedy shows & movies during my free time.
