Weichao Zhou

I am a Ph.D. student at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Boston University.  My research interests span reinforcement learning (RL), robust machine learning, and formal methods.  My research projects are focused on using formal specifications and data-driven approaches to learn reward functions for reinforcement learning. I am also working on the robustness analysis of neural network control systems (NNCSs)  and backdoor attack detection on neural networks in various applications, including computer vision and reinforcement learning. 

Here is my research statement.
