Fourth year PhD student at USC working with Greg Ver Steeg and Aram Galstyan using information theory for unsupervised machine learning. Most of my thinking revolves around rate-distortion and the Information Bottleneck method. I've worked on a noise model to exactly calculate the mutual information rate with neural network encoders, and applied these ideas in the context of invariant and disentangled representation learning.
