Jacob Tyo

I am a Ph.D. student in the Machine Learning Department of the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University, and Electronics Engineer at the U.S. Army Research Laboratory. Advised by Zachary Lipton, our lab focuses broadly on core machine learning methods and their applications in healthcare and social impacts. My research interests lie in meta-learning, artificial intelligence, reinforcement learning, and conversational machine learning.

Before joining CMU, I obtained a Master’s and a Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering at West Virginia University, where I worked with Prof. Roy Nutter and Prof. Katerina Goseva-Popstojanova to apply machine learning in computer security domains. My Master’s thesis leveraging standard machine learning techniques to detect software issues that have security implications.
