I am Fanyou Wu, and I am a postdoc at Purdue University. I received a Ph.D. degree in Forestry from Department of Forestry and Natural Resources, Purdue University(2021). Before attending Purdue, I received my master’s degree from University of Eastern Finland (2018) and bachelor’s degree from Nanjing Forestry University (2015) both in Wood Material Science. I was also an exchange student at the University of British Columbia (2013).

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 interests, and I have won many championships and runners-up in machine learning related competitions and top conference competitions at KDD, IJCAI, NeurIPS, and CVPR.


Sep 14, 2022 Our tree diameter measurement and species identification App is under under testing [update].
Jul 22, 2022 I received 2nd place for KDD CUP 2022 Amazon in Task 2 and Task 3.
