Wei Ma

My name is Wei Ma. I am a PhD student at Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering in Carnegie Mellon University. I’m now focusing on exploring the statistical features in both static and dynamic networks and building optimization strategies for recurrent and non-recurrent traffic conditions. I am also very interested in large scale statistical learning and model based machine learning.

I finished my undergraduate study in Tsinghua University in 2010. My major was Civil Engineering and I also took Math as my second degree.
