Muyang Li (李沐阳)

EECS, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

I’m a first-year Ph.D. student at MIT, advised by Prof. Song Han. I obtained my master’s degree at Robotics Institute, CMU, advised by Prof. Jun-Yan Zhu and my Bachelor’s degree from Zhiyuan College (ACM Class), Shanghai Jiao Tong University.

My research interest is in the intersection of machine learning, system, and computer graphics. I am currently working on building efficient and hardware-friendly generative models with its applications in computer vision and graphics.
