Computer scientist working at the intersection of probabilistic inference, systems, perception, and human-computer interaction.
I recently completed my PhD in EECS at MIT, advised by Vikash Mansinghka and Josh Tenenbaum. During my PhD I created the Gen probabilistic programming system. Before MIT, I was an early member and tech lead at a molecular diagnostics startup, a Master’s student at Stanford University, and an undergraduate student in computer science at UC Berkeley, where I worked with Pieter Abbeel on probabilistic robotics. My graduate school research has been funded by the NSF graduate research fellowship and the NDSEG graduate fellowship program, among other sources.
