Yu Rong (荣钰)


Hi! I am currently a Senior Staff Algorithm Engineer at DAMO Academy of Alibaba Group. I am generally interested in developing the novel and efficient graph learning algorithms to tackle real-world challenges, particularly in the realm of social networks and AI for Science.

Prior joining DAMO Academy, I served as a principal researcher at Tencent AI Lab for seven years. I briefly served as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at The Chinese University of Hong Kong. I received Ph.D degree at The Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2016, under the supervision of Professor Hong CHENG. Before that I obtained my B.S. degree with honors from Sun Yat-sen University.

JOB OPENINGS NOW!!: I am looking for highly motivated full-time positions / research interns on graph representation learning and AI for Science. Feel free to send your C.V. to me.
