My name is Konstantinos Christopher (“KC”) Tsiolis. I am a first-year M.Sc. student in Mathematics and Statistics at McGill University and Mila under the supervision of Adam Oberman. My current research is on self-supervised learning, deep learning theory (with a focus on random matrix analyses), and causal inference.
I graduated with a B.Sc. from McGill in Honours Mathematics and Computer Science in 2021, which is also when I began working with my current supervisor. During my first two summers of undergraduate studies I was a research assistant in natural language processing (NLP) under the supervision of Jackie Cheung, where I worked on word representation learning and computational pragmatics.

Writing is one of my favourite hobbies. Below is a selection of some poems that I have written:
“Tomorrow” (performed at the Vanier College poetry slam in 2017)
“Hero” (performed at the Vanier College poetry slam in 2018)
