I’m also known as Chi Zhang, where Zhang is my last name. As the name is too common in Chinese culture (there are at least four students of this name in my school), I would be happy if you could call me Alex Chi (or 迟策).

About Me

I’m a sophomore undergraduate student majoring in Computer Science at Shanghai Jiao Tong University.

Expected to graduate in 2022.
