Jianling Wang

I am a second year Ph.D. student in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Texas A&M University, advised by Prof. James Caverlee. I received my Master's degree in Computer Science from Georgia Institute of Technology and my Bachelor's degree in Information Engineering from The Chinese University of Hong Kong. I am interested in data mining and recommendation system. Currently, I focus on applying neural models to different recommendation scenarios.
