I am Yonggan Fu, a 5th year PhD student at Georgia Institute of Technology, working with Dr. Yingyan (Celine) Lin. Before that, I obtained my Bachelor's degree with a dual major in Applied Physics and Computer Science from the School of The Gifted Young at the University of Science and Technology of China in 2019. I am a recipient of IBM PhD Fellowship and was selected as Machine Learning and Systems Rising Stars 2023.

My research focus is to democratize cutting-edge AI technology on everyday devices via developing efficient and robust AI algorithms and co-designing the corresponding hardware accelerators towards a triple-win in accuracy, efficiency, and robustness. My CV can be found here (lastest update: Nov. 2023).
