Texas ECE PhD student Tianlong Chen has been awarded a 2022 Adobe Research Fellowship. Adobe created the Research Fellowship program to recognize outstanding graduate students anywhere in the world carrying out exceptional research in areas of computer science important to Adobe. Chen is one of only 10 Fellows for 2022.
Chen received his BS from the University of Science and Technology of China in 2017 and joined Texas ECE in Fall 2018. He is supervised in Texas ECE by Prof. Atlas Wang.
"My overall research focuses on building an accurate, robust, safe, and efficient machine learning system that can be reliably deployed in diverse real-world scenarios, said Chen. "Recently, I am working on extreme sparse neural networks with undamaged trainability, expressivity, and transferability."
Chen also received an IBM PhD Fellowship in 2021.
