Weijie Su


Prior to joining Penn in Summer 2016, I obtained my Ph.D. in Statistics from Stanford University in 2016, under the supervision of Emmanuel Cand├Ęs. I received my bachelor's degree in Mathematics from Peking University in 2011. I spent three summers at Microsoft Research (Beijing, 2010; Redmond, 2013; Silicon Valley, 2014).

  • A new paper (joint with Hangfeng He) identified a phenomenon that we term local elasticity in neural networks. Check out the slides.

  • In a new paper (joint with Zhiqi Bu, Jason Klusowski, and Cynthia Rush), we developed an asymptotically exact characterization of the SLOPE solution using approximate message passing (preliminary version accepted to NeurIPS 2019).

  • We introduced Gaussian Differential Privacy, a mathematically coherent, analytically tractable, and versatile framework for private data analysis (joint with Jinshuo Dong and Aaron Roth). Check out the paper!

  • I received the 2019 NSF CAREER Award.
