Yuting Wei

I am currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Statistics & Data Science at Carnegie Mellon University. Before joining Carnegie Mellon, I spent a wonderful year as a Stein's Fellow / Lecturer at Stanford Statistics Department. I obtained my Ph.D. in Statistics from University of California, Berkeley in 2018 under the supervision of Martin Wainwright and Aditya Guntuboyina. Prior to that, I got my B.S. in Statistics and minor in Economics from Peking University in 2013.

Specific Research Interests

My research interests lie broadly in the span of statistics, optimization and machine learning. More specifically, I have been developing methods appropriate for valid inference with high dimensional and structured data. I am also interested in understanding the interplay between statistical accuracy and computational properties. Recently, I got excited about exploring genetics data.
