My name is Lin Yang (杨林). I am currently a postdoc fellow at Princeton university (host: Prof. Mengdi Wang). I obtained my PhD degrees (in computer science and in physics) from Johns Hopkins University. I work on designing efficient algorithms for streaming data analysis and machine learning.
My middle name Forrest is a translation of my first name (林). My publication name is Lin F. Yang. Note that my official name (Lin Yang OR 杨林) does not contain a middle name.
