Post-doctoral Researchers

Chunfeng Cui, PhD    Google Scholar                       

Chunfeng received her PhD degree in Computational Math from the Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2016. After that, she spent one year at the City University of Hong Kong as a postdoc researcher, where she worked on optimization and tensor methods for hypergraph, computer vision and bioinformatics. She joined UCSB in Nov. 2017, and she is currently working on two topics: (1) uncertainty quantification for electronic and photonic design automation, (2) tensor methods for machine learning.
