About me

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. This fall, I will be starting as a research scientist at DeepMind in London.

Research Focus

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.
