Steven Hill

I am a 2nd year PhD student at UC San Diego working under CESR. My research focuses on machine learning and its applications to networks and security.

Within the area of artificial intelligence, I am a huge fan of latent variable models and biologically inspired computing.

I have the honor of being advised by Lawrence Saul, as well as co-advised by Geoffrey Voelker and Stefan Savage.
