Yanjun Han


I'm a postdoctoral scholar at the Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing, University of California, Berkeley.

My research interests lie in statistical machine learning, high-dimensional and nonparametric statistics, online learning and bandits, and information theory.

I received my Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University in Aug 2021, under the supervision of Tsachy Weissman. Prior to that, I received my B.E. in Electronic Engineering from Tsinghua University in Jul 2015.

Future news: In 2022-23, I will be a Norbert-Wiener postdoctoral fellow in the Statistics and Data Science Center (SDSC) at MIT. Starting from Sept 2023, I will be an Assistant Professor of Mathematics and Data Science at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences and the Center for Data Science at NYU.
