About Me

My name is Zhiwei Steven Wu (吴志威). I am a fifth-year PhD student in the CIS Department at Penn, where I am fortunate to be co-advised by Michael Kearns and Aaron Roth.

During the summer of 2015 and the spring of 2016, I was a research intern at Microsoft Research in New York City (MSR-NYC), and during the summer of 2016, I was also a research intern at Microsoft Research New England (MSR-NE). At MSR, I had the great privilege of working with Alex Slivkins, Vasilis Syrgkanis, Yishay Mansour, Bobby Kleinberg, Brendan Lucier and Nicole Immorlica.

My primary research interests are in developing theory and algorithms for privacy-preserving data analysis. I often study these questions within social and economic contexts. More recently, I have also been working on designing machine learning algorithms in economic environments and tools for adaptive data analysis.

I am currently on the academic job market! My CV can be found here.
