Xilin (Harry, Aenon) Sun is a Master of Engineering cadidate in Industrial Engineering and Operations Research, University of California, Berkeley.
Prior to joining UC Berkeley, Xilin earned his Bachelor of Engineering degree in Product Analysis and Engineering Design in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University.
Representative design projects can be viewed in XILIN'S PORTFOLIO.
Currently, he is doing a data science project under supervision of Prof. Lee Fleming at UC Berkeley, in cooperation with Jay Yonamine from Google. This project utilizes Motorola patent data from Google and PAIR data from United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). A tool to evaluate patents in terms of patent citation and blocking is being developed, using natural language processing (NLP) and machine learning techniques.
Xilin is an enthusiast of free software and its philosophy and a life member of USTC Linux User Group and Linux User Dinners. He is also a photographer.
Some useful information may be found at his blog (in Chinese), 500PX or LinkedIn.

He is in love with Wenying Liu, a Candidate of M.S. in Data Science at New York University.
