About Me

I am currently a PhD candidate in the Department of Computer Science at Cornell University, working with Professor Carla Gomes and Professor Bart Selman. I received a B.Sc. in 2011 from School of EECS, Peking University, China.

My research interest lies in reasoning and learning of probabilistic graphical models, crowd intelligence and computational sustainability.

*My English name comes from the Pinyin of my Chinese name. For those who cannot speak it well, Yeh-hsiang Hsüeh is my name in Wade-Giles System, and should be more approachable to people in English speaking countries.
