Winnie Xu

Winnie recently graduated with an H.BSc from the University of Toronto where she majored in Computer Science and specialized in Artificial Intelligence. Her research interests span broadly in generative models with probabilistic interpretations and differentiable numerical algorithms. As an undergraduate, she researched latent variable models, variational inference, and Neural ODEs / SDEs with David Duvenaud. She is currently a student researcher at Google Brain collaborating with Stanford University where she is working on efficient methods for training diffusion models and doing Bayesian program induction with large language models in reasoning tasks. In the recent past, she has also collaborated with Nvidia Research, Oxford (OATML), and Cohere AI on topics in robotics, large language models, and NLP.
