About me

I’m Zuohui Fu, a Research Scientist at Facebook. I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, under the supervision of Prof. Gerard de Melo and co-advised by Prof. Yongfeng Zhang. I received M.S. degree from University of Notre Dame in 2017. Before that, I received B.S. degree from Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications(BUPT) in 2014.

My research interests lie in Natural Language Processing, Information Retrieval and Human-centered Machine Learning, with the emphasis on Dialogue Systems, Knowledge Graphs, Recommender Systems with Explainability, Fairness, Causality and Human-AI Interactions etc.
