Zhenan Fan

I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Computer Science at The University of British Columbia. My supervisor is Prof. Michael P. Friedlander.

My research focuses on developing algorithms for large-scale structured optimization problems in machine learning and signal processing. Recently, I am interested in the distributed optimization problems arising in federated learning.

I have been working as a research intern at Huawei Technologies (Vancouver) since May 2020, where I focus on developing the linear programming solver OptVerse.

I am currently in my final year, and actively looking for a full-time position starting spring 2023. Feel free to contact me if you think my experience is a good match for your team. My resume can be found here.
