Zhilu is a second year graduate student in ECE. Zhilu obtained his Bachelor’s degree at Carleton College where he double majored in math and physics. He was born in China and lived in various countries like Japan and Singapore. His research interests are in machine learning and its application to biomedical problems. In his free time, Zhilu likes to cook, listen to music and exercise. [github]
B.S. and M.Eng. Students
Victor is a third year undergraduate student in CS at Cornell where he is a part of the Cornell Data Science project team alongside his research in the Sablab. His research lies broadly in Computer Vision and Reinforcement Learning problems; both in relation to the healthcare space. Nowadays, he is especially interested in Bayesian methods for Computer Vision and methods for few-shot deep learning. You’ll find him in office hours or the basketball court, but probably not at the Terrace. [github]
Amaya is a Master of Engineering student in the department of electrical and computer engineering at Cornell where she also graduated with a Bachelor of Science in the same major. Her interests lie in signal and image processing and machine learning, and specifically its application to medical data. Her project involves using encoding models to understand neural representations of sensory information. She enjoys cooking, reading, and playing tennis in her free time.
