Wei Deng

I am a ML Researcher at Morgan Stanley. My aim is to build scalable and reliable probabilistic methods across supervised, generative, and time-series domains. I got my Ph.D. in applied math at Purdue University in Dec 2021, where I was advised by Prof. Guang Lin and Faming Liang.

My thesis is: Non-convex Bayesian Learning via Stochastic Gradient MCMC

Current interests: Monte Carlo, diffusion models, neural SDE, deep state-space/ filtering methods (applicable to finance), Thompson sampling.
