I have a great pleasure in teaching and mentoring undergraduate and graduate students. I get a strong sense of accomplishment and job satisfaction at a point when my students learn how to transfer textbook knoweldge to fit into the general computer science discipline and how the knoweldge can be applied to solve real-world problems.

I am looking for self-motivated Ph.D. students (in Spring 2021 and Fall 2021) who are interested in developing machine learning algorithms for applications with great scientific and societal impacts. Please contact me (xiaowei@pitt.edu) if you are interested.
