Steven Hill

I am a 3rd year PhD student at UC San Diego. My interests are in probabilistic models for text; this runs the gamut from topic models to natural language processing. I also work on the applications of ML to problems in security.

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