Siyi Yang


I am a Ph.D. Candidate with the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). I received my M.S. degree on 2018, also from the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at UCLA. Prior to that, I received my B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from the Tsinghua University, Beijing, China. I have industrial experience at Intel Corporation in the summer of 2020, as a System on Chip (SoC) design engineer with the Non-volatile Memory Solution (NSG) group.

I am thrilled to win the prestigious 2020-2021 Dissertation Year Fellowship (DYF) at UCLA. In collaboration with my labmate, our proposal was selected to the finalist of 2020 Qualcomm Innovation Fellowship (QIF). I also received an runner-up recognition for the Memorable Paper Award from the 2018 Non-Volatile Memories Workshop (NVMW) in the area of devices, coding, and information theory. I was also an recipient of an Intel Spontaneous Recognition Award in 2020, and the 2019 D.E. Shaw Exploration Fellowship. Prior to that, I participated in mathematical Olympiads during high school and won a silver medal in the 27'th Chinese Mathematical Olympiad (CMO). I ranked 1st the 9'th Chinese Girls' Mathematical Olympiad (CGMO).

During the time off work, I enjoy watching musicals, ballets, dramas, and operas. I am also a big fan of Japanese animes. Apart from that, reading novels and poems have always been the major method to refresh my mind and gather more strengths.
