Yinlin Chen, Ph.D.
Digital Library Architect & Assistant Professor


I love to do research and create applications in the cloud (AWS and GCP), especially using cloud-native, microservice, and serverless architecture with awesome programming languages, machine learning techniques, and open source tools.
My research interests are in the area of the digital libraries, machine learning, transfer learning, deep learning, cloud computing, data science, and information retrieval.
