Jiaqi Yang

Hi! I am a senior undergraduate at the Institute for Interdisciplinary Information Sciences, Tsinghua University. I major in Computer Science and Technology (Yao Class).

I am an incoming PhD student in Computer Science in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at the University of California, Berkeley.

I am broadly interested in foundations of data science, statistics, and applied probability.

During my undergraduate years, I am pleased to have collaborated with Prof. Yuan Zhou, Prof. Simon S. Du, Prof. Jason D. Lee, and Prof. Tengyu Ma.
