I'm currently an M.Eng. student at MIT, where I work with Professor Josh Tenenbaum on computer vision.

Previously, I received my B.S. in computer science with a minor in math from MIT, where I worked with Professor Nir Shavit on computational connectomics.

Outside MIT, I've worked on some fun research projects at D.E. Shaw Research on molecular dynamics (MD) simulation, and SpaceX on machine learning for large-scale telemetry analysis.

Research
Deep Tensor Convolution on Multicores (paper)
with David Budden, Alex Matveev, Shibani Santurkar, Nir Shavit
International Conference on Machine Learning (ICML), 2017

We derive a suite of Winograd-style Fast Fourier Transforms to minimize computation for high-dimensional convolutions. Our algorithm runs faster than other deep learning libraries (e.g. Caffe, TensorFlow) for both inference and training on CPU.

Auto-encoding Variational Bayes with Extensions (paper) (code)
6.882: Advanced Bayesian Modeling and Inference, 2016

Explored variational autoencoders for image compression. Derived and implemented Natural Gradients to optimize the variational objective. Measured the effect of various loss functions and parameterizations of the latent space on reconstruction quality.
