Steven Hill

I am a 3rd year PhD student at UC San Diego. My interests are in models for text; this runs the gamut from topic models to word embeddings. I am currently under the tutelage of Julian McAuley.

Previously, I worked with Lawrence Saul, Geoffrey Voelker and Stefan Savage on machine learning applications to security.
