Lin F. YANG

My name is Lin Yang (杨林). I'm currently a PhD student at Johns Hopkins, studying physics and computer science. My Research Interests include: streaming algorithms, sketching, sublinear time/memory algorithms, high-dimensional geometry and cosmology. I'm very fortunate to be advised by Professor Alex Szalay and Professor Vova Braverman .

My middle name Forrest is a translation of my first name (林). Note that my official name (Lin Yang OR 杨林) does not contain a middle name.
