About Me : )

Hi! I am Xudong Shen (沈旭东). Friends also call me Oliver. I am a 4th year Ph.D. student at National Univeristy of Singapore, advised by professor Mohan Kankanhalli. Between 2015 and 2019, I was an undergraduate at Zhejiang University, China, majoring in Naval Architect and Ocean Engineering. I can be reached at xudong-shen@u-nus-edu (replace hyphens with dots). My cv is here.

I study fairness and bias in machine learning, with application to vision and language. I also study discrimination in economics, with focus on FinTech.

I believe in Diversity, Equity & Inclusion. I am committed to uphold these values.

If you are interested, I’ve written something more about myself
