# About Me

Hi ๐! I'm **Pingbang Hu ่กๅนณ้ฆ** (*Hu, Pingห-Bongห*) from Taiwan ๐น๐ผ, an incoming Ph.D.student in **Information Science** at *University of Illinois Urbana - Champaign (UIUC)* ๐บ๐ธ advised by Prof. Jiaqi Ma. My research interest is about *machine learning theory* and *theoretical computer science*, specialized on *graphs*.

I obtained my B.S. degree in **Computer Science** (minor in **Mathematics**) at *University of Michigan (UMich)* ๐บ๐ธ and B.E. degree in **Electrical Computer Engineering** at *Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU)* ๐จ๐ณ (dual-degree program).

My (academic) interest spreads widely among TCS and math. To name a few: I enjoy *algorithm design*, *computational complexity* ๐ง , *high dimensional statistic* ๐, *analysis*, *geometry/topology* and *optimization theory* ๐. Occasionally, I'll do street photography ๐ท and write blog posts ๐.

* Now*, I'm: designing

*fast graph algorithms*, exploring

*graph neural network theory*, studying

*graphings*.
