Ningzhi Tang (唐宁直) is a 1st year Ph.D. student in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Notre Dame, advised by Prof. Toby Jia-Jun Li in SaNDwich Lab. Before joining Notre Dame, he received his B.Eng. degree in the same department at Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech), conducting research on recommender systems under the guidance of Prof. Yuhui Shi.
My research interests lie at the intersection of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). Currently, I am working on a project that aims to understand programmer behaviors when debugging AI-generated code using a mixture of eye tracking and IDE tracking methods.
📢 I am looking for a summer internship in HCI research for 2024. Feel free to contact me if you know of any suitable openings!
🏆 Happy to share that I have been selected as the 2023 Excellent Graduate in the SUSTech, CSE Department, and Zhiren College!
🏆 Successfully defended my undergraduate thesis titled "DART: Resolving Training Biases for Recommender Systems via Data Discarding and Relabeling", which has been awarded the "2023 Distinguished Undergraduate Thesis of SUSTech"!
🏫 Thrilled to announce that I will be joining CSE@ND as a Ph.D. student in HCI starting in the fall of 2023!
📃 Our paper "Semi-decentralized Federated Ego Graph Learning for Recommendation" has been accepted to WWW 2023!
📃 Our paper "An Empirical Study of Developer Behaviors for Validating and Repairing AI-Generated Code" has been accepted to PLATEAU 2023!
💬 Excited to present our poster titled "Understanding Developer-AI Collaboration: A Behavioral and Cognitive Modeling Approach" at the 2022 Fall Symposium hosted by the Lucy Institute for Data & Society.
📃 Our paper "Single-shot Embedding Dimension Search in Recommender System" has been accepted to SIGIR 2022!
🥪 Delighted to share that I will be joining SaNDwich Lab at the University of Notre Dame as a research intern from July to December 2022. I am also excited to spend the rest of the year with my girlfriend, Gelei Xu 😺, in Notre Dame!
🏆 Our paper titled "An Optimized FAST Working Face Model Based on Ideal Parabolic Surface" has been awarded first prize in the Contemporary Undergraduate Mathematical Contest in Modeling (CUMCM) held in China!
📢 I will participate in the summer workshop at the School of Computing at the National University of Singapore! I will be conducting research on AIoT under the guidance of Prof. TAN Wee Kek.
