Hi! I'm Zhi-ning LIU (刘芷宁).

I am a M.Sc. student at School of Artificial Intelligence at Jilin University, supervised by Prof. Yi Chang.
Before that, I obtained my B.Sc. degree in Computer Science with high honor from Jilin University in 2019.
My recent research interests include Imbalanced Learning, Transfer Learning, and Applied Machine Learning.
