I am Jinkun Chen (he/him/his), a Ph.D. student (Post-Bachelor’s, fully funded) studying Computer Science at Dalhousie University supervised by Dr. Hassan Sajjad, and co-supervised by Dr. Evangelos E. Milios. My research primarily revolves around Explainable AI, NLP, and Visualization, with a particular emphasis on promoting fairness, responsible and trustworthy within LLMs. While my work is not heavily centered on ocean data, it does occasionally touch on aspects of marine environment analysis as part of my works and broader research interests. Prior to my doctoral studies, I obtained a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science with First Class Honours from Dalhousie University under the supervision of Dr. Fernando Paulovich, who is now an Associate Professor at Eindhoven University of Technology.
Aside from my role as an AIS Data Analyst with MERIDIAN at Institute for Big Data Analytics and MARS group, I am also a member of HyperMatrix Lab and MALNIS Lab, a Teaching Assistant at Dalhousie University, and a co-founder of Exorcat Technologies Ltd. Also, I teach part-time at Orange Education Ltd.
I can be reached at [email protected] or [email protected]. You can also find my profile on LinkedIn. If you are interested in reading my thoughts and insights, you can visit my blog, which is located on a separate website from the one you are currently viewing.
In addition to my academic pursuits, I have a diverse range of hobbies and experiences that enrich my life. For instance, I have achieved certification as an AOW (Advanced Open Water) diver, and I also enjoy playing the Chinese Bamboo Flute as a creative outlet. Additionally, I have prior experience serving as an anchor on Bilibili, a popular video-sharing platform in China.
Lastly, if you happen to speak Chinese, my Chinese name is 陈晋坤, which is pronounced as chén jìn kūn.
