Research Interest

My research interest focus on theory and applications of automated machine learning, including:

  • explainable/interpretable neural architecture search (NAS)
  • convergence analysis for evolutionary computation-based NAS
  • multi-/many-objective/ and constrained optimization for NAS
  • low-energy consumption NAS with high-inference speed
  • feature selection and construction
  • auto data augmentation
