ANDREW ILYAS

I’m an concurrent B.S./M.Eng student at MIT, double majoring in CS and Math; my interests currently lay somewhere around theoretical Machine Learning.

My master’s thesis is being supervised by Constantinos Daskalakis at MIT CSAIL. I also work in the CBBM at MIT, investigating invariances in Neural Networks. I’m also a founding member of labsix.

In past years, I’ve worked in the Database Lab at MIT, and as an intern at Two Sigma Labs, where I worked on Convex Optimization and Online Learning.

Personal Projects

In this section I have included a list of previous hardware/software projects, including hackathon products, and weekend projects.

Research Archives (Pre-MIT)

In this section I have included a near-complete list of previous research topics, and links to the papers, reports, or products created as a result of that research. The projects are sorted chronologically, with every project from 2009 (Grade 5!) to present (Grade 12).
