Kelvin Wong

I am a PhD student at the University of Toronto and the Vector Institute, where I work on machine learning and self-driving cars. My advisor is Raquel Urtasun.

Previously, I was a research scientist at Uber Advanced Technologies Group. I earned my MSc from the University of Toronto, my BCS from the University of Waterloo, and my BBA from Wilfrid Laurier University. During my undergrad, I was fortunate to have worked with Will Evans and Peter van Beek.
