Welcome to my website


Imagine a picture of me

My name is Bolton Bailey.

I am a second.5-year Ph.D. student at UIUC, where I am advised by the venerable Matus Telgarsky (from whom I stole this website layout).

I prove things about neural networks.


During summer of 2019, I am visiting the Simons Institute. Among other things I presented in the Robustness reading group on poisoning

In 2019, I received a NSF Graduate Research Fellowship.

A Gradual, Semi-Discrete Approach to Generative Network Training via Explicit Wasserstein Minimization (With Yucheng Chen, Matus Telgarsky, Chao Zhang, Daniel Hsu, Jian Peng) ICML 2019. (arxiv)

Size-Noise Tradeoffs in Generative Networks (With Matus Telgarsky) NeurIPS 2018 Spotlight. (arxiv) (slides) (video)

Other interests:
