Feng Niu

I was a PhD student in the Computer Sciences department at UW-Madison, and graduated in August, 2012. My next stop is Google, and it starts in September, 2012.

My research interests include
(1) how to build scalable statistical inference/learning/analytics systems; and
(2) how to apply such systems to challenging problems such as text analytics.

I'm co-advised by Christopher Ré and AnHai Doan. Currently I mainly work on the Hazy project and the DARPA Machine Reading program. Please check out our Tuffy and Felix systems, in which we apply data management techniques to scale up a probabilistic logic language called Markov logic.

I got a B.S. in Computer Science from Tsinghua University in 2008.
