Organizations

MIT CSAIL

PhD Candidate (2021 - present)

In Fall 2021, I will be starting my PhD at MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab. I will be exploring topics at the intersection of computation and cognition under the co-mentorship of Jacob Andreas and Josh Tenenbaum.

Reverie Labs

Senior ML Engineer (2019 - 2021)

Reverie Labs is rethinking early-stage drug discovery using machine learning. At Reverie, I'm helping to develop best-in-class models for virtual screening and lead optimization of pre-clinical cancer therapeutics.

Harvard College

Undergraduate, Computer Science (2014 - 2018)

I concentrated in Computer Science with a focus in Mind, Brain, and Behavior, a highly interdisciplinary program of study that draws on ideas and methods from computer science, cognitive science, neuroscience, psychology, linguistics, and philosophy.

Google AI

SWE Intern (2017) / APM Intern (2018)

I interned at Google AI / Google Brain during summer 2017 and 2018. In 2017, I worked on the AI Perception team, applying deep learning to the problem of multilingual character recognition. In 2018, I worked on the Tensorflow team within Google Brain, democratizing machine learning and deploying Tensorflow models across a wide range of Google products as part of the company's AI-first strategy.

Fedorenko Language Lab (MIT)

Research Assistant (2016 - 2018)

I worked as a research assistant at the Fedorenko Lab at MIT from summer 2016 through 2018. The Fedorenko Lab uses neuroimaging and behavioral methods to construct computational models for language processing in the brain. As part of my research, I developed an unsupervised ML algorithm to extract semantic information from GloVe vectors as part of the IARPA Knowledge Representation in Neural Systems (KRNS) project.

Harvard Society for Mind, Brain, and Behavior

Chair, Board Member (2014 - 2018)

HSMBB​ is an undergraduate organization that regularly hosts events, talks, and symposia on a wide range of topics related to cognitive science. I served on the board of HSMBB throughout my time at Harvard, including a year as chair.
