In 2016 he was the recipient of the Daniel M Lazar '29 Excellence in Teaching Award. Kilian Weinberger's research focuses on Machine Learning and its applications. In particular, he focuses on learning under resource constraints, metric learning, Gaussian Processes, computer vision and deep learning. Before joining Cornell University, he was an Associate Professor at Washington University in St. Louis and before that he worked as a research scientist at Yahoo! Research in Santa Clara. (C.V..)

About me: I am married to (the amazing) Anne Bracy. Together we have three children, Timo, Koby and Nika. In my spare time I like reading, baking, running, skiing, mountain biking, or boating on Cayuga Lake. Some books that I really enjoyed are The Three Body Problem Trilogy, a Gentleman in Moscow, and Never Let Me Go (although, the last one I wouldn't recommend for everybody).

If you are a Cornell student and want to get in contact with me, please just show up to my office hours (see link in side bar). Please do not email me unless absolutely necessary.
