Hello! This is Jianing “Jed” Yang (杨佳宁). I am a Master’s student in Machine Learning at Carnegie Mellon University. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from Georgia Tech.

I am fortunate to be advised by Prof. Louis-Philippe Morency and Prof. Matt Gormley at CMU. My research interest lies in Multimodal Natural Language Understanding, Dataset Bias Analysis, and Machine Learning in general!

Before I delved fully into research, I had been a Software Development Engineer at  Amazon Web Services, intern and full-time.

Outside of work, you will find me skiing/cooking/baking/photographing.

I will be joining UMich CSE as a PhD student in Fall 2021!
