2 December 2020 – Four new faculty members have joined NUS Computing’s Department of Computer Science:
Dr Yang You
In recognition of his outstanding contributions to soft computing and its applications as a PhD student, he won the Lotfi A. Zadeh Prize, and was also a Siebel Scholar.
His research interests are in the areas of Machine Learning, Parallel/Distributed Algorithms, and High-Performance Computing.
The focus of Dr You’s current research is scaling up deep neural networks training on distributed systems or supercomputers.
Dr Warut Suksompong
Prior to that, he received a Master’s degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, and a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science and Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, in 2014 and 2013 respectively.
His research focuses on algorithmic game theory, computational social choice, mechanism design, and other problems at the interface of computer science and economics.
Dr Christian Von Der Weth
Prior to that, he obtained his Master of Computer Science from the Ilmenau University of Technology, Germany in 2004.
Dr Von Der Weth’s research interests are in the areas of Applied Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing, Social Media & Social Network Analysis, and Privacy.
Dr Ashish Deepak Danekar
Before that, he graduated with a Bachelor of Computer Engineering degree from College of Engineering, Pune, India in May 2014.
Dr Dandekar’s research interests are in the areas of providing privacy guarantees for machine learning models, addressing privacy-utility trade off, and designing cost models for private data.
