Tong Zhang was an ASA fellow and IMS fellow, and has served as the chair or area-chair in major machine learning conferences such as NIPS, ICML, and COLT, and has served as associate editors in top machine learning journals such as PAMI, JMLR, and Machine Learning Journal.
    His research group investigates the fundamental theory of machine learning. Based on theoretical understanding, they design effective machine learning algorithms for practical problems. They also apply machine learning methods to various applications such as computer vision and natural language processing.
