Jacob Si

PhD Student at Imperial College London

I am a PhD candidate at Imperial College London supervised by Prof. Yingzhen Li specializing in Generative AI. Before joining Imperial, I earned a Master of Engineering degree specializing in AI and ML from the University of California, Los Angeles and an Honours Bachelor of Science in Computer Science, Statistics and Economics at the University of Toronto. I am also fortunate to be advised by Prof. Rahul Krishnan at the Vector Institute and Prof. Jonathan Kao at UCLA where I research novel machine learning architectures through deep generative modeling.

Anyone interested in working on generative models feel free to contact me by email!
