Chen-Yu Wei

I am a Research Fellow at the Simons Institute of the Theory of Computing, under the Data-Driven Decision Processes program. I recently obtained my Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Southern California, where I was fortunate to be advised by Prof. Haipeng Luo. I received my M.S. in Communication Engineering and B.S. in Electrical Engineering from National Taiwan University.

I am interested in designing provably efficient algorithms for online learning and reinforcement learning.
