I am Tianyi Zhang, a postdoctoral fellow at Tel Aviv University, supervised by Prof. Shay Solomon, and previously supervised by Prof. Shiri Chechik during 2021-2023. I received my PhD in computer science at Tsinghua University in 2021, advised by Prof. Ran Duan, and a BEng in computer science at Tsinghua University in 2016. I study graph algorithms.
