About Me

My name is Yupei Lin. I graduated from University of Wisconsin-Madison with major in computer science and minor in Mathematics. I am going to Baylor College of Medicine for my Ph.D study.

I am interested in Computational biology and Bioinformatics, particularly in interdiciplinary studies of computer science, mathematics, statistics to solve biology based problems.

My undergraduate advisor is Professor Qiongshi Lu.

Research Projects

Image Style Transfer

Realize both artistic style transfer and realism style transfer by implementing Neural Style Algorithm and Deep Style Transfer with CPU based on Tensorflow.

Its main goal of this project to reimplement Deep Photo Style Transfer (Luan et al., 2017), which can faithfully transfer the input image into the style of reference image while preserve the content of the original input image with a deep-learning method. And we want to create a GUI online so everyone can access to it easily to transfer style of their images.

Sentimental Analysis For Yelp Review

This project wins second place on Kaggle competition to predict Yelp categorical data based on Yelp open reviews by applying Term-Frequency Inverse Data Frequency to top 4000 features to construct a regression-prediction

Post-disaster recovery using optimization

In this project, we use the following model to address first two purposes: model Debris Clearance Scheduling Model (DCSM) which schedules the road restoration to maximize total weighted earliness under a set of scenarios. Once we gain the total earliness for each district under those scenarios, we solve equipment allocation resources by using Equipment Allocation Model (EAM). We have a modified version of EAM to compare performance of different districts and finally and Resource Distribution model to give out resources on the restored path.
