Hi, I'm Kevin Li

I am a Computer Science and Biomedical Engineering undergrad at Georgia Tech. I am advised by Polo Chau, who is the PI of Polo Club of Data Science.
My interests encompass the intersection of machine learning and human-computing interaction and deep learning. I enjoy working on projects that utilize deep learning architectures or aim to interpret and understand how machine learning models learn.
I am a head teaching assistant for Georgia Tech's undergraduate and graduate Machine Learning course (CS4641 & CS7641) where I was Georgia Tech's Undergraduate Teaching Assistant of the Year for 2022. If you're in my section and reading this, please feel free to reach out for anything – I won't bite.
I have worked at Amazon Web Services (AWS) as a Software Developer Engineer intern and Qualcomm's Autonomous Driving project as a Data Engineer intern.
I will be pursuing my Ph.D. in Machine Learning at Carnegie Mellon University's School of Computer Science in Fall 2023!
