About Me


Point Reyes National Seashore – the lighthouse!

I’m Wei Wen (), a Ph.D. student in Duke University, supervised by Dr. Hai Li and Yiran Chen. Before I transferred to Duke, I finished my first three years’ Ph.D. study in University of Pittsburgh. My research interests include efficient deep learning, model structure learning and brain-inspired computing systems, with applications in computer vision and natural language processing.

I enjoy innovating practicable techniques to transform theoretical foundations into daily-life benefits.
