Hello! I am a first-year PhD student in Computer and Communication Sciences (EDIC) at EPFL. My interests lie in programming languages, formal methods and software engineering. I’m currently doing my semester project at SYSTEMF.

Fun fact: my full name is Yawen /jǎːwə́n/ Guan /kʷǣn/. Many of my Chinese friends prefer to call me by my last name, then gradually they call me Gwen ;D Feel free to call me by either name!
