Saiyue Lyu


I am a Computer Science Ph.D. student at the University of British Columbia co-supervised by Prof. Mijung Park and Prof. Mathias Lécuyer. I am interested in privacy-preserving machine learning. Currently I am working on differential private data generation, to synthesize data without sacrificing privacy.

I obtained my master degree in the Cheriton School of Computer Science at The University of Waterloo supervised by Prof. Mark Giesbrecht working on mathematical algorithms and symbolic computation. I completed my undergraduate degree at Waterloo in Pure Mathematics and Combinatorics & Optimization, where I was fortunate to work with Prof. Yu-Ru Liu. I also worked with Prof. Zhicong Lu on HCI and Computational Social Science about crisis informatics.
