Jiantao Jiao


I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at University of California, Berkeley. I received the B.Eng. degree from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China in 2012, and the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees from Stanford University in 2014 and 2018, respectively. I am a member of the Berkeley Laboratory of Information and System Sciences (BLISS) and the Berkeley Artificial Intelligence Research (BAIR) Lab. I am broadly interested in statistical machine learning, mathematical data science, optimization, applied probability, information theory, and their applications in science and engineering.

My research on distributed systems and cryptocurrency is funded by The Distributed Technology Research Foundation. Check out our research manifesto!

Due to the large volume of emails that I receive, I generally do not respond to unsolicited inquiries about student or postdoc openings, or research advice. Nevertheless, if you have a strong quantitative background and think your interests are compatible with mine, please feel free to contact me.
