Joie Yeahuay Wu

I am a PhD student at University of Massachussetts Amherst, where I work on representation learning from multimodal data. My PhD advisor is Ina Fiterau.

I have a B.S in Computer Science and Mathematics from Temple University. During undergrad, I was mentored by Vasily Dolgushev, Bo Ji, and Anne Ngu.

I'm broadly interested in disentangled representation learning, and multimodal deep learning. I am interested in advances in these fields that result in improved model performance on downstream tasks such as time-series forecasting and diagnosis of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's.
