Alex Lu

Senior Researcher


I’m a Senior Researcher at Microsoft Research New England. I’m interested in how machine learning can help us discover new insights from biological data, by finding patterns that are too subtle or large-scale to identify unassisted. I primarily focus on biological images, and my research often designs self-supervised learning methods, as I believe these methods are unbiased by prior knowledge.
