Haozhu Wang 

I'm a Ph.D. student in EECS Department at University of Michigan, where I develop machine learning methods for scientific and healthcare applications. Previously, I received B.Eng. in Optoelectronics from a joint program at Tianjin University and Nankai University.

I always enjoy collaborating with aspiring researchers. Please feel free to send me an email if you want to discuss about research ideas.

[Sep-2021] I will graduate in Jan 2022 and join 3M AI Lab as a Machine Learning Scientist.


My research focuses on reinforcement learning, meta-learning, and generative models. On the application side, I collaborate with domain experts to solve challenging problems in physical sciences and healthcare. The long-term goal of my research is to create ML systems that can assist human experts in scientific discoveries and innovations.
