About Me


    My name is Yu Yuan (袁煜). I am a first-year Ph.D. student in the Intelligent Imaging Lab (i2Lab), School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Purdue University, under the supervision of Prof. Stanley H. Chan. Prior to this, I obtained my M.S. degree and B.E. degree from Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 2023 and 2020 respectively.

   My research interests encompass computer vision and machine learning, with a particular emphasis on computational photography and generative models.
