Bowen Jin

I am a 3rd-year Ph.D. student in Computer Science at University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, fortunately advised by Prof. Jiawei Han. Before that, I was an undergraduate student in Electrical Engineering of Tsinghua University, fortunately advised by Prof. Yong Li. During the past, I spent time at Amazon Search, Microsoft Research (both Redmond and Beijing), UCLA and Umich.

I receive the Apple PhD Fellowship in 2024. For further information, please see my CV (last update: 2024.5.6).

Research Interests: My research lies at the intersection of large language models, information networks and text/data mining. In particular, I focus on how language models can integrate text, network, and multimodal data for solving real world problems including information retrieval and knowledge discovery.

I am maintaining an awesome github repo on Large Language Models on Graphs with a survey paper. Feel free to have a look!

I started to play a traditional Chinese instrument, Sheng at the age of eight. Here is a concert record of mine. Hope you enjoy it!:)

I’m a “universal” ball fan and enjoy working out. If you cannot find me in office, catch me at the gym. 😃
