About

I'm a third year PhD student at MIT EECS advised by Aleksander Mądry and funded by a Google PhD Fellowship. I'm most interested in machine learning robustness and generalization.

I previously worked at Two Sigma (summer 2018), Google Brain (summer 2017) and Apple (summer 2016). I went to MIT for undergrad and grew up in beautiful Lincoln, MA. Outside of research I contribute to open source and play pickup soccer.
