About me

Hi, I'm Bowei Yan, a 3rd year PhD student at the University of Texas at Austin, Department of Statistics and Data Sciences. I am advised by Prof. Purnamrita Sarkar. Before coming to UT, I completed M.S in Peking University working with Prof. Yuan Yao.

I work on statistical machine learning problems, focusing on community detection for stochastic block models and clustering mixture models. I'm also interested in other applied statistical problems such as brain mapping.
