I am Guangyuan Weng (翁光源), a Ph.D. student in Computer Science at Northeastern University. My research interest lies broadly in computational social science, data mining, and deep learning. I am particularly fascinated by the intricate relationship between human mobility and urban economies and aspire to explore this area in depth. Previously, my focus was on advancing long-tail image recognition and enhancing visual reasoning through representation learning.

Prior to Northeastern, I gained valuable experience as a research intern at the IU Computer Vision Lab under the mentorship of Prof. David J. Crandall. Before that, I worked with Prof. Sören Schwertfeger as a research assistant at The Mobile Autonomous Robotic Systems Lab. My academic roots trace back to ShanghaiTech University, where I completed my B.E. degree in July 2021.

  • Our days may come to seventy years, or eighty, if our strength endures;
  • Yet the best of them are but trouble and sorrow, for they quickly pass, and we fly away.
  • If only we knew the power of your anger!
  • Your wrath is as great as the fear that is your due.
  • Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.
  • (Psalm 90:10-12 NIV)
