Zhenjie Zhao

I am a lecturer at Nanjing University of Information Science and Technology (NUIST). I received the Ph.D. degree from The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST), working on human-computer interaction with Prof. Xiaojuan Ma. My research interests include multimodality, explainability, and machine learning for NLP. Feel free to reach me out at zzhaoao AT nuist.edu.cn.
