Fanyou Wu | 吴凡优

Graduate Research Assistant
Department of Forestry and Natural Resources
Purdue University

I am Fanyou Wu, currently a Ph.D. candidate at Purdue University from the Forestry and Natural Resources Department. Before attending Purdue, I received my master degree from University of Eastern Finland (2018) and bachelor degree from Nanjing Forestry University (2015) both in Wood Material Science. I was also an exchange student in the University of British Columbia (2013). Now my research focuses on applying machine learning to forest-related problems e.g., wood identification through image recognition.

Attending machine learning related competitions is my side interesting, and I have won many championships and runners-up in machine learning related competitions and top conference competitions at KDD, IJCAI, NeurIPS and CVPR.
