Hello! My name is Hangzhi Guo (郭杭之 | Birkhoff). I am a Ph.D. student in the College of Information Sciences and Technology (IST) at Penn State Uniersity advised by Dr. Amulya Yadav. I graduated from Wenzhou-Kean University majoring Computer Science.

I am broadly intersted in human-centered machine learning. My current focus is to develop actionable and robust Explainable Machine Learning models (e.g., CounterNet, RoCourseNet). I am also devoted to apply techniques in machine learning and human-computer interaction to help under-served groups (including low-resource farmers, children with autism). Media converages of these works include, News Medical Life Sciences, and Penn State News.

I am organizing the Penn State CSRAI Young Achievers Symposium.
