Xindi(Cindy) Wu

I am Xindi Wu, a second-year CS Ph.D. student in Princeton University, advised by Prof. Olga Russakovsky. Previously I was in Master of Science in Computer Vision at Carnegie Mellon University. I was very fortunate to be advised by Prof. Deva Ramanan and work with Prof. Min Xu and Prof. Haohan Wang and Prof. Kris Kitani. I was admitted to the Honors Youth Program at Xi'an Jiaotong University.

My research focuses on data for efficient multimodal ml, with a particular interest in dataset distillation and generation. I am happy to collaborate and answer questions about my research, feel free to send me an email. I especially encourage students from underrepresented groups to reach out.
