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

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 competation like KDD/IJCAI etc. Now I am ranking 11th in Tianchi Competition Platform held by Alibaba Company with nickname 铁球.

I am attending Kaggle and seeking team members.
