Hi! I'm a researcher at Microsoft Research NYC. (We're hiring postdoctoral and permanent researchers in ML/RL!) My work weaves between the theory, empirical science, and pragmatic design of learning algorithms. In an immediate research capacity, I care about:
In other capacities, I care about fairness, alignment, intersectionality, and boundary objects.
Bringing these together, I'm currently particularly obsessed with understanding and expanding the algorithm design space around all aspects of deep sequence models, towards improving their planning and reasoning capabilities.
I completed my Ph.D. in Computer Science at Princeton, under the supervision of Prof. Elad Hazan. For the latter half of that wonderful adventure, I was a student researcher at Google AI. Before that, I completed a B.S. in Computer Science at Yale, and grew up in Toronto.
