About Me



I'm Hongwei Fan from Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications(BUPT), and this is my personal website. Currently I'm pursuing for my master degree under the advision of Prof. Weihong Deng(whdeng.cn). Besides my research, I'm also enthusiastic in literature and arts, and some of my works have been widely spread in BUPT and even to a broader region.

This website was built by using lnmp+wordpress system, with theme Sakura(github.com/mashirozx/Sakura) installed. If you want to build your own personal website in this way, a detailed instruction is strongly recommended: seoimo.com/wordpress-vps/. Special thanks to the instruction of Seoimo and the theme of Mashiro.
