Yin-Cong Zhi

DPhil Student, Engineering, Machine Learning Research Group

Yin-Cong came from a background in statistics, data science and computational finance, and is currently pursuing a DPhil in Machine Learning at the Oxford-Man Institute. Working under the supervision of Dr. Xiaowen Dong and Prof. Stephen Roberts, he is focusing on predictive learning with graph based datasets. Currently Yin-Cong is looking at ways to integrate graph information into kernel functions of Gaussian processes, aiming to combine graph learning and Gaussian process regression on time series data to achieve improved forecasting performance.

Yin-Cong obtained First Class honours MSci in Mathematics at Imperial College London. In addition to machine learning, he has interests in a range of topics including Monte Carlo and Quasi Monte Carlo, option pricing and stochastic simulation.
