About Me


Jason Lin

Hi! I graduated with a M.S. in Computer Science from Georgia Institute of Technology, specializing in Machine Learning and Computer Vision . I earned my dual degree in Computer Science & Business at the University of Southern California.

 [2021 - now] I'm focusing on large language models (LLMs), sparse mixture models, and multimodal NLP. 
My M.S. research interests were in deep learning for object detection and 3D understanding, with an emphasis on perception and human-centered AI. In undergrad I specialized in OS, computer networks and security.

I've been fortunate to live in many places: New York, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Hong Kong, San Jose, Palo Alto, and (currently) San Francisco. In my spare time, I enjoy hiking outdoors and reading history.
