In 2016, I graduated from the Computer Science undergraduate program at UC Berkeley, with a 4.0 in major GPA. I currently work at Google as a Software Engineer on the Brain Robotics team. The views expressed on this blog are personal opinions, and do not reflect the opinions of my employer.
My main research interests are deep reinforcement learning, transfer learning, and multitask learning.
At Berkeley, I did undergraduate research in the Berkeley Artificial Intelligence Research (BAIR) Lab, mentored by Pieter Abbeel and working most closely with John Schulman. I was also a TA for CS 70, the introductory discrete math and probability course.
In 2016, I was an Honorable Mention for the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program.
As someone who started as a math major, I’ve always had a soft spot for theoretical computer science. Outside of machine learning, I enjoy complexity theory, theoretical cryptography, and mathematical logic.
Posts range from explanations of research papers to observations of my life and stupid jokes. I post whenever I have the time to, meaning not very often, but historically I average about one post per month.
In my free time, I like playing Dominion competitively. At my best, I was in the top 25 worldwide. I’m currentl ranked 62nd. I also watch My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, and like participating in puzzle hunts.
