Chao-Yuan Wu

I am a computer science Ph.D. student at University of Texas at Austin. My research interests are primarily in 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.
