Hi! I'm Hongyang (Ryan) Zhang. My research interests lie in the intersection of machine learning, algorithms, and theory. Current focus includes how to learn from limited data using data augmentation, multi-task and transfer learning, theory of neural networks, and large-scale graph algorithms.

I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from Stanford University, advised by Ashish Goel and Greg Valiant. I did my undergraduate study in Computer Science from the ACM Honored Class at Shanghai Jiao Tong University. Here is my resume and Google Scholar profile.
