Ye Shi  石野 

Tenure-track Assistant Professor (SIST, ShanghaiTech University)

Phone: (021) 20684426
Address: Building 1A 404.A, 393 Huaxia Middle Road, Pudong New Area, Shanghai, 201210, China.
Major: Computer Science, Information and Communication Engineering.
Research areas: Artificial Intelligence, Smart grid, Nonconvex optimization and Big data.

Position Openings

  • Postgraduate Students: Dr. Ye Shi recruits 2~3 postgraduate students for each academic year. The candidate is expected to be self-motivated in doing research on nonconvex optimization, machine learning, big data, smart grid or robust control. Solid mathemetical background and sufficient programming skills are required. If you are interested in this opening, please email me your CV ;
  • Undergraduates/Visting Students: We warmly encourage students (from ShanghaiTech or other Universities) studying at Computer Science and Technology, Information and Communication Engineering, and other related disciplines to join our group ;
  • Research Assistant: Dr. Ye Shi is seeking a research assistant to work closely with the principal investigator, postdoc, and students in the laboratory. A master degree in mathematics, computer science, machine learning, electrical engineering, control, big data or related areas is required.

Research Interests

  • My current research interests mainly focus on Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Smart Grids, and on the fundamental optimizations underlying them. I am interested in developing Responsible AI (RAI) algorithms that are more robust, more privacy-preserving and more explainable compared with traditional deep learning methods. Moreover, our target is to use the developed RAI methods to solve not only the tasks like Computer Vision and Natual Laguage Processing, but also the real-world applications, such as Smart Grid and Autonomous Vehicles.
  • Responsible Artificial Intelligence: federated learning, robust machine learning, explainable AI, meta learning;
  • Smart grid: optimal power flow, electric vehicle coordination, distributed renewable energy integration.

Brief Biography
