About

I’m a third year undergraduate student majoring in Data Science and Cognitive Science at the Halıcıoğlu Data Science Institute in University of California, San Diego. I’m generally interested in applications of deep learning, in particular deep generative models for images and audio. Outside of academics, I’m an EDM Producer/DJ with 5 years of experience.

As I’m going to the third year of my undergraduate career, I’m planning on giving back to the community that raised me up in my first and second year of college. I’m currently looking for mentees who are willing to be advised by me. The ideal mentee should be majoring in Data Science or a related field, or want to pursue a career in machine learning or data science in general. If you are interested, please send me an email (zwcolin@ucsd.edu) to introduce yourself.

Course Schedule

To my friends at UC San Diego, here is my tentative four-year plan with quarter-by-quarter course schedule. If you want to take courses together with me, please refer to the below document and discuss any plans on wechat (if you have it) or UCSD email to see if there are possibilities. This tentative plan is subject to changes at anytime.
