Xingyi Yang

I am a second year master student of University of California, San Diego. I am now working under the supervision of Prof.Pengtao Xie. I am also fortunate to work with Prof.Rose Yu and Prof.Fenglong ma. I got my bachelor degree in Computer Science and Engineering from Southeast University, China in 2019. I used to be a visiting student at University of Ottawa, supervised by Prof.Robert Laganière.

My current research interest can be summarized into 3M scheme:

  • Statistical Machine learning. Focus on generative modeling and robust learning.
  • Minimal supervision. Focus on self-supervised & semi-supervised & weak-supervised learning, transfer learning, knowledge-grounded learning.
  • Medical data analysis, especially in the outbreak of the pandemic.


I believe in Slow Science
