Dr. Shanghang Zhang is a Tenure Track Assistant Professor at the School of Computer Science, Peking University. She has been the postdoc research fellow at Berkeley AI Research Lab (BAIR), UC Berkeley, working with Prof. Kurt Keutzer and Prof. Trevor Darrell. Her research focuses on OOD Generalization that can enable the machine learning systems to generalize to new domains, categories, and modalities using limited labels, with applications to IoT problems including autonomous driving and intelligent manufacture, as reflected in her over 50 papers on top-tier journals and conference proceedings, including NeurIPS, ICLR, ACM MM, TNNLS, TMM, CVPR, ICCV, and AAAI (Google Scholar Citations: 4321, H-index: 28, I10-index: 38). She has also been the author and editor of the book “Deep Reinforcement Learning: Fundamentals, Research and Applications” published by Springer Nature. This book is selected to Annual High-Impact Publications in Computer Science by Chinese researchers and its Electronic Edition has been downloaded 150,000 times worldwide. Her recent work “Informer: Beyond Efficient Transformer for Long Sequence Time-Series Forecasting” has received the AAAI 2021 Best Paper Award. It ranks the 1st place of Trending Research on PaperWithCode and its Github receives 3,300+ Stars. She has been selected to “2018 Rising Stars in EECS, USA”.
