Chulin Xie

Welcome! I am a first-year CS PhD student at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, advised by Prof. Bo Li. Before that, I received my Bachelor degree in the CS Department, Zhejiang University in July 2020.

In general, my research interests include machine learning, adversarial robustness, distributed optimization, federated learning and privacy.
