Dr Jie Zhang 

Hi there! I am a Lecturer in Computer Science at the University of Southampton. Before Southampton, I was a Research Associate at the University of Oxford and had been a Postdoc at Aarhus University. I received my Ph.D. from the City University of Hong Kong and visited the EconCS group at Harvard University for six months.
