Jicong Fan

Research Assistant Professor

School of Data Science, CUHK(Shenzhen)

I am a Research Assistant Professor at the School of Data Science, The Chinese University of Hong Kong (Shenzhen), and Shenzhen Research Institute of Big data, Shenzhen, China. Before that, I was a Postdoctoral Associate at the School of Operations Research and Information Engineering, Cornell University, Ithaca, USA. I completed my PhD at City University of Hong Kong in Electronic Engineering, 2018, under the supervision of Prof. Tommy W.S. Chow (FIEEE). And during my PhD, I was a visiting scholar at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA. I was a Research Assistant at The University of Hong Kong from 2013 to 2015.

My research interests include machine learning, computer vision, and optimization. I also worked on statistical process control and neuroscience signal/data processing. My research projects relate to: 1) low-rank/high-rank matrix factorization/recovery/completion; 2) recommendation system; 3) automatic machine learning; 3) clustering algorithms; 4) tensor decomposition/recovery; 5) deep learning; 6) non-smooth optimization; 7) fault diagnosis; 8) EEG/fMRI analysis.

I am looking for PhD students, Research Assistants, and Visiting Students. If you are interested in these positions, please send your CV/resume to fanjicong@cuhk.edu.cn.
