I am Xinyu Yang (杨新宇), an undergraduate from ACM Honors Class, Zhiyuan College, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, and an incoming Ph.D. student at Carnegie Mellon University, advised by Prof. Beidi Chen. Currently, I’m fortunate to work with Prof. Song Han at MIT HAN Lab as a research intern, and Prof. Chelsea Finn at Stanford IRIS Lab remotely. During my junior year, I also had a wonderful time as an undergraduate researcher advised by Prof. Junchi Yan at SJTU ThinkLab.

My primary research interests lie in the intersection of machine learning and system (MLSys). I am currently working on building efficient transformers via algorithm/system co-design, with its applications in 3D vision.
