I am Shixing Yu (于世兴), a first year Ph.D. @ the ECE department, The University of Texas Austin, jointly advised by Prof. Atlas(Zhangyang) Wang and Prof. Diana Marculescu. I'm interested in using statistical methods to compress neural networks (Pruning, Quantization, Distillation, NAS) and analyze network sparsity. My research interest also lies in all kinds of computer vision topics, e.g. the recently popular Vision Transformer.
Currently, I'm also a research intern @ NVIDIA Corp. with the AV perception team for Deep Learning Software and Research under the guidance of Jose Alvarez
Previously, I finished my undergraduate study @ EECS deparment, Peking University, in 2021, where I was working with Prof. Jiaying Liu on image/video processing.
I also worked as a visiting student researcher @ University of California, Berkeley, in Summer 2020, where I had the priviledge of working with Prof. Kurt Keutzer and Prof. Michael Mahoney.
