My name is Timothy Chu, a fifth year PhD student at Carnegie Mellon University. I am fortunate to be advised by Dr. Gary Miller. My interests include spectral graph algorithms, fast linear system solving, and mathematical foundations for (non-deep) machine learning.
Stuff I'm Into:
- Computer Science and Mathematics. I'm interested in all sorts of topics, ranging from 3D geometry to the math behind crystals. I find a lot of joy in simpler, non-research mathematics.
- Learning people's stories: I've collected stories from people all around the world, from backgrounds ranging from rural Trump counties to urban West Africa. If you have a story to share, I would love to hear it.
- Education. I've worked on education programs around the world, from Europe to Africa. Some of my former students have gone on to achieve great things for their country.
