My name is Zhiyu Chen(陈知雨), from China. My first name “Zhiyu” comes from an ancient Chinese poem(好雨知时节), which means good rain knows the season. Now I am a Ph.D candidate at Lehigh University CSE department, advised by Prof. Brian D. Davison. My research interests include data mining, machine learning, natural language processing and information retrieval(word clouds generated from my reading list here). Here is my CV.
