I am Xinyu Yang (杨新宇), a first-year Ph.D. student at Carnegie Mellon University, advised by Prof. Beidi Chen. My research focuses on building useful, reliable, and efficient foundation model systems for scientific research and broader human society. I also work closely with Prof. Tianqi Chen at CMU and Prof. Huaxiu Yao at UNC.

Before coming to CMU, I was an undergraduate student from ACM Honors Class, Zhiyuan College, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, and a research intern working with Prof. Junchi Yan at SJTU-ReThinkLab. I also had a wonderful time as a research intern working with Prof. Song Han at MIT HAN Lab and remotely with Prof. Chelsea Finn at Stanford IRIS Lab.
