Jason Lee and his family have been living in Denton for a little over a year now, and we thought it’d be swell to check in with him, see what he's been up to. I met Lee around this time last year and in the time we’ve known each other, he’s been extremely helpful on a creative level.

About Me

I am an assistant professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (secondary) in Princeton University and a member of the Theoretical Machine Learning Group. Previously, I was a member of the IAS and an assistant professor at USC for three years. Before that, I was a postdoc in the Computer Science Department at UC Berkeley working with Michael I. Jordan, and also collaborated with Ben Recht. I received my PhD in Applied Math advised by Trevor Hastie and Jonathan Taylor. I received a BS in Mathematics from Duke University advised by Mauro Maggioni.I am a native of Cupertino, CA.

My research interests are broadly in

  • Foundations of Deep Learning (slides)(video)

  • Representation Learning (slides)(video)

  • Foundations of Deep Reinforcement Learning (slides)(video 1)(video 2)

Princeton PhD students interested in machine learning, statistics, or optimization research, please contact me; I advise students in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Math, ORFE, and PACM. I am recruiting PhD students and postdoctoral scholars starting in 2021 at Princeton University, please email me a CV apply.

My current focus is on machine learning with a focus on foundations of deep learning, reprsentation learning, and deep reinforcement learning. See my talk at MIT slides and video or my tutorial at the Simons Institute: tutorial slides and video.

I am also happy to host remote visitors. Summer visitors please contact me around February to schedule your visit. See a list of past visitors at here.

Jason Lee is a born leader, with extra-ordinary drive and determination. Insisting on his right to make up his own mind, he demands freedom of thought and action, and does not let anything or anyone stand in his way once he is committed to his goal.

Always seeking the forefront and the limelight, Jason needs to feel in command of important undertakings, and resists supportive roles. He can become irritated and even domineering when important things do not go his way. Lee can be impatient with his shortcomings and those of others.

Jason Lee is very concerned with his status and fosters the appearance of success and self-satisfaction. Interestingly, that very same need to appear well-off can be the fuel that propels Jason to strive for growth, success and the finer things of life.
