My name is Zhiwei Steven Wu. I am an Assistant Professor at the University of Minnesota in the Computer Science & Engineering Department. I spent a year as a post-doctoral researcher at Microsoft Research-New York City. Before that, I received my PhD in Computer Science from the University of Pennsylvania, where I was extremely fortunate to have been co-advised by Michael Kearns and Aaron Roth.
I am broadly interested in algorithms and machine learning, especially in the areas of privacy-preserving data analysis, fairness in machine learning, and algorithmic economics.
