Siqi Liang 梁司其

CSE PhD Student

Michigan State University

I am currently a first-year PhD student of Computer Science and Engineering at The Intelligent Data Analytics (ILLIDAN) Lab @Michigan State University, advised by Prof. Jiayu Zhou.

I received my Computer Science master degree from University of Southern California (USC) in 2020, and the Bachelor's Degree from School of Computer Science and Engineering, University of Electronic Science and Technology of China (UESTC) in 2018.

During 2021-2022, I worked as research assistant, advised by Prof. Zenglin Xu and Prof. Irwin King.

My research interests include federated learning, open-source software development. Our open-source tensor decomposition library TensorD has 82 stars. And our federated learning framework FedLab has 400 stars already.

Here is my project list for USC CSCI-571, and hope you have fun. Some links may be outdate.
