I am an assistant professor at McMaster University. Before joining McMaster University, I was a Principal Researcher at Huawei Technologies Canada, Co., Ltd. During 2015~2018, I successfully led 7+ research projects as a Postdoctoral Fellow at Simon Fraser University. I obtained my Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from University of Chinese Academy of Sciences in June 2015.


Dr. Lingyang Chu received the doctoral degree from the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing, China, in 2015. He will join the Department of Computing and Software on January 1st, 2021. He is currently a principal researcher at Huawei Technologies Canada, where he leads a research team focused on deep neural network interpretation, AI fairness, federated learning and big data analytics. Before joining Huawei, he worked as a postdoctoral fellow at Simon Fraser University. His research works in large scale graph mining and interpretable AI have been published in top-tier venues. One of his works on interpretable AI was reported by a mainstream web portal of AI research in China in 2018.
