Calvin Xu

I am a PhD Student in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). My research interests lie in robust and formally verifiable machine learning. Specifically, I am currently focused on exploring adversarial examples and leveraging them to understand the behavior of deep learning systems. I am also interested in robust generation of adversarial examples, neural network repair, neural network verification, and the intersection of explainable and robust ML.

I am currently working on a PhD in Computer Science at UIUC working with Prof. Gagandeep Singh. I previously obtained my Masters and Bachelors at Washington University in St. Louis in 2018 where I worked with Prof. Angelina Lee and Prof. Kunal Agrawal.

I am always excited to talk about new ideas in adversarial/robust/certifiable machine learning, computer vision, and other deep learning theory topics. Feel free to shoot me an email anytime.
