Hello! I am Bhrij Patel. Currently, I am a senior at Duke University double majoring in CS and Math with a minor in Creative Writing. I am an undergraduate research advised by Dr. Cynthia Rudin in her Interpretable ML Lab (previously the Prediction Analysis Lab).
I have broad interests in ML such as predictive analytics, computer vision, interpretability, generative modeling, and representation learning. Recently, I have been focusing on unsupervised representation learning to find meaningful structures in real-world visual data that are useful for downstream tasks.
In my undergraduate year, I have researched interpretability for criminal recidivism models, superresolution, weakly supervivsed learning protein localizations, Cryo-Electron Microscopy, synthetic ECG generation, and data dimension reduction of neural networks with topological constraints.
I am currently applying to PhD programs in CS!
