I'm a Research Scientist in Google Brain (team part of Google Research/AI). I have several years' experience as a software engineer developing and deploying machine learning models in production to millions of users, but spend most my time doing machine learning research now. Academically, I was fortunate to get my start in machine learning at the University of Toronto.
Many of the above papers involved collaborations with superb Brain interns and residents who I mentored:
Former Interns -- Abigail See, Jamie Murdoch, Ethan Steinberg, Eric Chu, Yu-An Chung,
Jingzing Zhang (hosted by Yao Zhao).
Former Residents -- Colin Raffel, Jie Ren.
