I am fortunate to be in a position where I can now mentor excellent undergraduates getting started with research.
Promoting Undergraduate Research in Engineering (PURE)
Through the UIUC PURE program, I began working with four undergraduate students on two projects:
David Wang and Richard Chu, "Self-Optimizing Parameters Within Neural Network Activation Functions" -- Earned Best Project Award (see corresponding image)
Samyak Shrimali and Manvitha Veeramreddy, "Entropic Forgetting for De-Biasing Neural Networks"
