Lin Yang is currently a PhD student in the Computer Science Department and Physics Department of Johns Hopkins University. He will obtain two PhD degrees at the end of this year. He works on algorithms for streaming data analysis. He studies the fundamental complexity of the streaming computation model and designs new and better algorithms for important problems. His research connects theoretical computer science with machine learning and computational cosmology in the big data regime.
