Shixing Yu

I am Shixing Yu (于世兴), a first year Ph.D. at the ECE department, The University of Texas Austin, jointly advised by Prof. Zhangyang(Atlas) 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.

Previously, I finished my undergraduate study at 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 at University of California, Berkeley, in 2020, where I had the priviledge of working with Prof. Kurt Keutzer and Prof. Michael Mahoney.
