Tianshi Gao's Homepage

Bio

I'm a research scientist at Facebook working on practical large-scale machine learning systems. I graduated from Stanford University with a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering in 2012. Before that, I obtained my bachelor's degree in EE with honors from Tsinghua University in 2007.

My Ph.D. advisor at Stanford is Professor Daphne Koller who has co-founded Coursera .
