About Me

Athul Paul Jacob

I am a senior undergraduate at the University Of Waterloo pursuing Computer Science, Combinatorics and Optimization as well as a visiting researcher at MILA. I am currently a Research Intern at Facebook AI Research NY. I am supervised by Prof. Yoshua Bengio, Prof. Pascal Poupart, Prof. Kyunghyun Cho and Dr. Alessandro Sordoni. The focus of my research is primarily on generative models and NLP.
