Xiaowen Dong is an Associate Professor in the Department of Engineering Science, where he is an academic member of both the Machine Learning Research Group and the Oxford-Man Institute. He is also a Tutorial Fellow at Lady Margaret Hall.
Prior to joining Oxford, he was a Postdoctoral Associate in the MIT Media Lab, where he remains as a research affiliate, and received his PhD degree from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL), Lausanne, Switzerland.
Xiaowen is primarily interested in utilising graphs to model relational structure within the data, and developing novel techniques that lie at the intersection of machine learning, signal processing and complex networks. He applies these techniques to study questions across social and economic sciences, with a particular focus on understanding human behaviour, decision making and societal changes.
