Yifan Wang

I am a first-year CS Ph.D. student at Georgia Tech. I am interested in theoretical computer science, especially in topics related to computational economics. Currently, I am working with Prof. Sahil Singla.

Before my Ph.D, I earned my bachelor's degree from the Department of Computer Science and Technology, Tsinghua University. When I was an undergraduate, I worked on outlier detecting with Dr. Honglei Zhuang, concept prerequisite prediction with Prof. Jie Tang, and rounding algorithms for semidefinite programming with Prof. Nina Balcan.
