Hello, I am Fudong Lin, a third-year Ph.D. student in the Department of Computer & Information Sciences at University of Delaware, advised by Dr. Xu Yuan. I received my bachelor’s degree from Shandong University, China, in 2016. From 2016 to 2020, I worked in the industry developing Cloud Computing and Internet of Things (IoT) applications. My research interests lie in deep learning, computer vision, and AI for Science, including deep learning security, long-tailed recognition, and climate change-related applications (e.g., storm prediction, crop yield prediction, etc.).
