Zhengyuan Zhou

  I am currently a Ph.D. Candidate in the Information System Laboratory in Department of Electrical Engineering at Stanford University. I am also concurrently pursuing a M.S. in the Department of Statistics. I am very fortunate to be advised by Professor Nicholas Bambos and Professor Peter Glynn. I am also working with Professor Stefano Ermon on learning deep latent variable models. I am funded by a Stanford Graduate Fellowsip (SGF) in Science and Engineering.

I attended University of California at Berkeley from August 2009 to December 2012 and graduated with B.E. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences and B.A. in Mathematics. At Berkeley, I was very fortunately advised by Professor Claire Tomlin and Professor Jonathan Shewchuk. Over the years, I have also been very fortunate to work and collaborate with many amazing people. If you share similar research interests and would like to chat, feel free to stop by. This is my Google Scholar page.
