PhD Candidate

About Me

Boqian is a first-year Ph.D. student at the University of Twente in the Data Management & Biometrics (DMB) group. During her Ph.D., she is focusing on sparse neural networks, specifically the theoretical aspects of such networks. Her goal is to uncover the mechanisms that underlie the practical effectiveness of sparse neural networks.
