My research broadly focuses on responsible AI for building a resilient, sustainable and equitable future, including environmentaly and socially responsible AI. More concretely, I work on two complementary directions: (1) developing foundational algorithms and empirical methodologies to make AI and networked computing systems more sustainable; and (2) leveraging AI and computational techniques to make our networked society more sustainable and equitable. In addition, I have also done research on a few other topics such as security and fairness.
