About me

My name is Jingwu Tang (唐静吾). I am a first-year PhD student in the Software and Societal Systems Department at Carnegie Mellon University, where I am fortunate to be advised by Prof. Steven Wu and Prof. Fei Fang. Before that, I obtained my bachelor’s degree at Turing class, Peking University. During my undergraduate research journey, I was fortunate to be advised by Prof. Xiaotie Deng. My research interest broadly lies in differential privacy, algorithmic game theory and machine learning. Most recently, I have been thinking about how to design better mechanisms through machine learning approaches.

More About Me

I love many kinds of sports, including basketball, badminton, jogging (also some track events) and outdoor biking, yet I’m not good at all of them. I’m a big fan of Stephen Curry and Golden State Warriors. I love reading, especially books about social science and history. In my spare time, I like to engage in social service that may help someone in need. I spent two years organizing a school club that helps students of underdeveloped areas in China, and once became a volunteer teacher for 2 weeks.

My Erdős number is 3.
