Lu Yin ;


Greetings! I’m Lu, an Assistant Professor in AI at the University of Aberdeen and a long-term visiting researcher at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e).

I served as a Postdoctoral Fellow and received my Ph.D. degree from TU/e., under the supervision of Prof. Mykola Pechenizkiy and Dr. Vlado Menkovski. I obtained my Master’s and Bachelor’s degrees from the Harbin Institute of Technology. I was research scientist/intern at Google's NYC office.

My research interests include:

  • #AI Efficiency
  • #Model Sparsity
  • #Large Language Models
  • #AI for Science

Feel free to reach out if you’d like to discuss anything with me :)
