I am senior undergraduate at MIT majoring in computer science. I’m interested in artificial intelligence including topics in unsupervised learning, reinforcement learning, and more sample efficient learning. I’m currently a research intern at FAIR.

In the past, I’ve interned at Facebook, done a fellowship at OpenAI and received gold medals at the International Biology Olympiad.
