Shanshan Zhong (钟珊珊)


Hello there! I am a second-year master student from the School of Computer Science and Engineering at Sun Yat-sen University, advised by IEEE Fellow Prof. Liang Lin and Prof. Wushao Wen. My research interests primarily revolve around multimodality, including multimodal large lanugage models, diffusion models, and multimodal recommender systems.

I am seeking a PhD position starting in Fall '25! Please feel free to drop me an email!
