Chao-Yuan Wu

I am a computer science Ph.D. student at University of Texas at Austin, advised by Professor Philipp Krähenbühl. My research interests are in computer vision and statistical machine learning.

Prior to joining UT Austin, I received my M.S. in machine learning at Carnegie Mellon University. I worked with Professor Alex Smola on several areas in machine learning.
