Jason Lee

I am a Ph.D student in Computer Science at New York University, where I work on generative modelling with a focus on text. I am a member of the CILVR group and work closely with Kyunghyun Cho.

Before joining NYU, I received my Bachelors and Masters from St John's College, University of Cambridge and worked as a research assistant at ETH Zürich. I also spent time at Google Brain and Facebook AI Research as an intern.

My research is supported by Qualcomm Innovation Fellowship (2016-2017).
