SCOTT YANG
Bio
I am a mathematics PhD student at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences under the advisement of Professor Mehryar Mohri. My research focus is in machine learning, primarily in computational learning theory, on-line learning, and ensemble methods. More generally, I am also interested in optimization and statistics.

Since 2015, I have co-organized the NYU Machine Learning Seminar.

In 2011 and 2012, I co-directed Courant Splash, a STEM outreach event for high-school students organized by the Courant Institute. I now act as a senior advisor to the organizing committee.
