Kelvin Xu

I am a final year PhD student at UC Berkeley. My advisor is Prof. Sergey Levine. I am interested in the question of how we can create useful (aligned) ML systems.

Before starting at Berkeley, I had the amazing pleasure of working at Google as part of the inaugural Brain Residency Program (now AI Residency).

I did my MSc at the MILA lab at the Université de Montréal under the supervision of (Turing Award Winner) Prof. Yoshua Bengio and Prof. Aaron Courville. I also worked closely with (now NYU Prof.) Kyunghyun Cho. Prior to that, I did my B.A.Sc in the Engineering Science Program at the University of Toronto, where I did my senior year thesis in the machine learning group under Prof. Richard Zemel.

I am currently on the job market! If you think we would be a good fit, please feel free to reach out! To see what I've been working on recently, please see my google scholar for my publications.
