Zhengyuan Zhou

  I am a Ph.D. Candidate in the Information System Laboratory in Department of Electrical Engineering at Stanford University. I am advised by Professor Nicholas Bambos and Professor Peter Glynn. I am funded by a Stanford Graduate Fellowsip (SGF) in Science and Engineering. I attended University of California at Berkeley from August 2009 to December 2012 and graduated with B.E. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences and B.A. in Mathematics. At Berkeley, I was advised by Professor Claire Tomlin and Professor Jonathan Shewchuk. Over the years, I have also been very fortunate to work and collaborate with many amazing people.
