Hello, my name is Jerry, and I use he/him pronouns. My hometown is Can Tho, a small city in Vietnam. Currently, I’m a sophomore at Beloit College pursuing a double major in Computer Science and Math. My previous research experienced involved applied mathematics, number theory, machine learning, and deep learning. Although I’m still exploring new areas, my current interests include studying the theoretical aspect of machine learning, neuroevolution, and computer vision. After graduation, I plan to further my education in a Ph.D. program in machine learning and related fields. Outside of the classroom, I enjoy spending time with friends, playing games, practicing guitar, and playing badminton.
