About me

Hi, I'm Yuwei, now as a research assitant at Fast Lab. Due to the influence of COVID-19, I gap from my master study at University of Pennsylvania and will return on 2021!

I have an interdisciplinary background for self-driving technology. Based on my undergraduate study in transportation engineering, I’m experienced with the pedestrian and vehicle simulations, traffic network and signal control, which aided me with better understanding of self-driving from a macroscopic perspective. During my summer program in machine learning, the abundant practical experiences has been accumulated for the further data mining and algorithms. With a five-month intern about self-driving algorithm in the perception and sensor fusion department, I improved myself with coding skills in c++ and Python, deep learning frameworks, as well as the teamwork communication skills.
