Hi! I'm Hongyang (Ryan) Zhang. My research interests lie in the intersection of machine learning, algorithms and statistics. Current focus includes neural networks and its theory, weak supervision such as data augmentation, multi-task learning, and network analysis.

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.
