My legal name is Junhyung Kim (김준형), but I usually go by Lyle. I am a fourth year Ph.D. student in Computer Science at Rice University, advised by Prof. Anastasios Kyrillidis. I also work closely with Prof. César A. Uribe.
I am currently visiting MILA – Quebec Artificial Intelligence Institute as a student researcher, under the supervision of Prof. Gauthier Gidel and Prof. Ioannis Mitliagkas.
Before joining Rice, I was a research professional at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business supervised by Prof. Panos Toulis.
I received bachelor’s degrees in Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Chicago in 2017. During my senior year at the college, I also worked with Prof. Mikael Kuusela under the supervision of Prof. Michael L. Stein.
In summer 2022, I worked at Meta (Fundamental AI Research) as a research intern under the supervision of Dr. Aaron Defazio.
Here is my CV.
Ph.D. in Computer Science, 2019 - present
B.A. in Mathematics; B.A. in Statistics, 2017
University of Chicago
