## Chihao Zhang **张驰豪**

I am a postdoctoral researcher in Institute of Theoretical Computer Science and Communications, The Chinese University of Hong Kong. I obtained my PhD degree from Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 2016, under the supervision of Prof. Yuxi Fu and Prof. Pinyan Lu.

I will join John Hopcroft Center for Computer Science at Shanghai Jiao Tong University as an Assistant Professor in Fall 2018.
