Soheil Esmaeilzadeh

I'm a Ph.D. researcher at Stanford University with a strong background in applied machine learning and AI as well as computational science and numerical modeling. I'm interested in using deep learning and artificial intelligence as well as computational science and applied mathematics for solving challenging real-world problems. I have 5+ years of demonstrated experience in programming and software development, and 4+ years of hands-on experience dealing with large-scale data and building machine learning and deep learning models for different areas such as computer vision, natural language processing, and reinforcement learning. I have 2+ years of industrial experience in United States and Europe in different tech companies such as Netflix, Visa Research, Quantum Reservoir Impact, CalWave, and ABB.
