Henry (Yuhao) Zhou

I have recently finished my undergraduate study at University of Toronto. and joined Facebook AI Research as an AI Resident working with Michael Auli and Alexei Baevski on unsupervised speech pretraining.

As an undergraduate student, my focus of study are machine learning, software engineering and system control. Since January in 2017, I have been working as an undergraduate research assistant under the supervision of Prof. Sanja Fidler and Prof. Jimmy Ba on computer vison and reinforcement learning projects.

Before I worked as a research assistant, I primarily spent my time on various software engineering internships. During which period, I gained strong coding skills through in-depth experience on large-scale engineering projects.
