Xiuyu Li

I am joining the EECS department at UC Berkeley in Fall 2022 as a Ph.D. student!

Previously, I received a B.A. in Computer Science and Math from Cornell University. During my undergrad years, I was fortunate to work with Prof. Zhiru Zhang, Prof. Vitaly Shmatikov, and Prof. Song Han.

My research interests lie in efficient, scalable and privacy-preserving machine learning systems. I am also broadly interested in learning for graph-structured data and 3D point clouds.
