Victoria Lin


Hello! I am a PhD student in the Department of Statistics and the Machine Learning Department at Carnegie Mellon University, where I am advised by Louis-Philippe Morency and Edward Kennedy. I am broadly interested in problems at the intersection of causal inference and machine learning, particularly in natural language settings.

Previously, I was a master's student in CMU's Language Technologies Institute, where I worked on multimodal machine learning and affective computing (also with Professor Morency and with Jeffrey Girard). Prior to joining CMU, I obtained my AB in Statistics and Molecular & Cellular Biology from Harvard University, then spent a wonderful year as a researcher with Miguel Hernán in the Program for Causal Inference (now CAUSALab) at the Harvard School of Public Health.
