About me


Greetings! My name is Zhuoning Yuan. I am a graduate student studying computer science in the University of Iowa. I earned a bachelor's degree of Electrical Engineering. I have accomplished many cool projects and some of them are still in progress. My career goal is to become a computer scientist who can facilitate people's life using the techniques I learned, such as machine learning and data mining. Now, I am a member of Machine Learning and Optimization Research Group of CS Dept.
