I am a probabilistic programmer, systems engineer, and open-source developer.
My last role was a research engineer at MIT-IBM, supporting DARPA's Machine Common Sense (MCS) mission. Before that I was a Master’s student in electrical engineering and computer science at MIT, advised by Vikash Mansinghka in the MIT Probabilistic Computing Project. During my undergraduate in Computer Science and Physics at MIT, I was a part of the Computational Cognitive Science Group directed by Joshua Tenenbaum, where I researched applications of neural networks to program induction and models of intuitive physics. I also did an internship with the self-driving car startup ISEE, where I implemented point-based vision algorithms for online object detection using LIDAR.
These days I'm interested in: low-level probabilistic languages and autonomous vehicles. I occasionally put new things up on my blog.
