About me

Hi! My name is Tianyu Wang. I'm a second year PhD student in the Department of Computer Science at Duke University. At Duke, I am advised by Prof. Cynthia Rudin. Before coming to Duke, I obtained my B.Sc. in Mathematics and Computer Science from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology where I was advised by Prof. Mordecai Golin. Currently, I am working on gradient-free optimization. More specifically, I'm using Upper Confidence Bound scheme combined with decision tree models to optimize systems such as hyperparameters for neural nets.
