I recently obtained my Ph.D. from the Computation and Neural Systems program at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech). I was co-advised by Professors Pietro Perona and Yisong Yue. In the fall, I will be starting as a research scientist at DeepMind in London.
My goal is to create machines that are able to learn to perform tasks through observing and interacting with their environments. Toward this end, I have focused on connecting ideas from predictive coding (in theoretical neuroscience) with modern deep generative models and deep reinforcement learning.
