About MeSkillsCertificationsProjectsExperienceEducation
Hello, I'm Wei Yang.
Ph.D. candidate in Mathematics and Statistics at Binghamton University, interested in Random Matrix Theory
and
Data Science.
Graduated from Baruch College, where the areas of study concentrated in Economics, Financial and
Actuarial
Mathematics.
Having more than 4 years of practical experience in the field of Machine Learning and Data Science.
Proficient in multiple scripting languages, including Python, R, Javascript and Julia.
I'm currently reading The Sensory Order by F. A. Hayek. A book on
theoretical psychology from 1952 (as a point of reference, the Perceptron Algorithm is invented in
1958).
It's surprising to see that Hayek's theory closely resembles our modern understanding of Neural Network
Models.
I will be starting an internship in May at The AES
Corporation, where I will
be applying Machine
Learning, Data Science and Random Matrix methods to projects in Renewable Energy and Commodity Trading.

Handwriting Recognition Web Application
Balanced an unbalanced image data set by generating randomly perturbed images from the existing ones,
the resulted data set contains over 2,500,000 28 Γ 28 pixel images with 62 labels.
Trained a Convolutional Neural Network model with the generated data set in Python with TensorFlow,
achieving 90% accuracy. The model is then exported as a JavaScript object, for web deployment.
Created a Handwriting Recognition Web Application with the trained model, and deployed to the project
web page.
Developed a package to work with matrix-valued distributions.
Documented functionalities and deployed the documentation to the package documentation page
π.

Personal Website & Interactive Demos (This website π)
September 2021 - Present
Designed a personal website from scratch using JavaScript and HTML, with the purpose of sharing my
projects and write about Mathematics and Data Science.
Created Interactive Demos to demonstrate ideas in Mathematics and Data Science.
This is a long term project, and I will be continuing to update the pages on this website.
