Yongwhan Lim Faculty Profile

Yongwhan  Lim


Department of Computer Science

I am entering my 5th year as a software engineer at Google. I currently work on Brain Research on Deep Learning (50%) and TensorFlow Runtime (50%). As a part-time lecturer, I teach in multiple places including CSU System, Harvard, and UC System. I finished my undergraduate education at Stanford University with a double major in mathematics and computer science. Then, I pursued a doctorate program in operations research at MIT for about three years before joining Google.
