Benoît Zhou


I am a master's student at Stanford University who is keenly interested in Applied Mathematics, and more particularly in Machine Learning.
Prior to coming to Stanford, I studied Applied Mathematics at Ecole Centrale Paris, and Mathematics and Physics at Louis-le-Grand in Paris.
I will be doing quantitative research after I graduate.

In my spare time, I like to solve puzzles.
I also enjoy teaching very much, and have been a teaching assistant at Stanford for CS224N: Natural Language Processing with Deep Learning, CS221: Artificial Intelligence, MS&E135: Networks, MS&E235: Network Analytics, and MS&E201: Dynamic Systems.

More recently, while at Uber in San Francisco, I worked on Machine Learning to build better pricing algorithms.

Albert Einstein quoted Arthur Schopenhauer in Mein Glaubensbekenntnis: A man can do what he wants, but he cannot will what he wills.
Had I not pursued a scientific career, I would have become a musician. Here is a 100 second piano video if you are into that.
