Sidi Wu

Ph.D at Simon Fraser University (co-supervised by Jiguo Cao).

Sidi Wu is a Ph.D student that I currently co-supervise with professor Jiguo Cao at Simon Fraser University. Together, we are developping ways to integrate neural networks into functional data analysis. Sidi is on verge of graduating and obtaining the title of doctor!

Our work together lead to one publication Neural Networks for Scalar Input and Functional Output, one submission Functional Autoencoder for Smoothing and Representation Learning and multiple posters and talks. Among those presentations, Sidi won the 2022 SSC Student Poster Presentation Award and the 2023 SSC Student Research Presentation Award presenting our joint work.

Sidi will soon be graduating and at the moment we are exploring concepts of interpretable functional neural networks.
