I'm a third year PhD student in Computer Science at Stanford University advised by Noah Goodman. I'm interested in more efficient learning algorithms using weak- and self- supervision.

I did my undergrad in CS at Yale ('16) where I worked on astrostatistics. Then, I took a year off before starting graduate school, where I worked at Facebook Research. I also helped found a startup building a probabilistic programming language in Excel called Invrea.

Some of the amazing researchers I like to work with: Chris Piech, Stefano Ermon, Michael C. Hughes, Finale Doshi-Velez, Frank Wood, Kristy Choi, Ali Malik, Milan Mosse, Conner Vercellino
