Tyler Zhu Personal Website computer science, mathematics, rationality, and machine learning.

Welcome!

My name is Tyler Zhu, and I'm a 3rd-year EECS undergraduate at the University of California, Berkeley. Broadly, my main interests are mathematics and computer science, especially around teaching them, but I'm currently focused on machine learning, especially in model robustness and efficiency. Aside from academics, I find human behavior (especially cognition) and social dynamics fascinating, and play guitar and basketball (big Giants and Warriors fan). I also enjoy music, and am a huge foodie and coffee savant. If you're equally interested in any of the above, let's chat! You can find some various things that I work on around my website. My coursework and some course notes I write a below, as well as some teaching resources I've made over the years and my personal blog. Go ahead, check them all out!

Coursework

Here's an abridged summary of the classes I have taken. Some of them have links to additional resources that I've created. The notes are written in LaTeX and live during lecture, so they may contain many errors. I try my best to correct them after the fact. My setup is inspired by that of Evan Chen's. You can find some of them in my public course notes repository.
