Michael Zhang PhD Student at Toronto


Hi! I’m Michael Zhang, a first year PhD student at University of Toronto, supervised by Jimmy Ba. My current research focus is on deep reinforcement learning. I’m also interested in understanding the mathematics and theory behind various algorithms.

I did my undergrad at UC Berkeley and worked in Pieter Abbeel’s group. Teaching was an important part of my undergraduate career.

Outside of academic stuff, I enjoy basketball, frisbee, hiking, swimming, and running (pretty much every sport!) I also read and meditate.

If you want to talk, feel free to send me an email at michael at cs.toronto_dot_edu.
