I am a second-year PhD student in computer science at Courant, where I work on probabilistic modeling and inference. Mostly, I'm focused on
approximate inference using monte carlo estimation. For this topic, I'm interested both in deriving new inference techniques and in
applying formal methods to verifying correctness properties of existing techniques. I am lucky to be advised by:
- Fall 2019 (10/17): preprint on rethinking recurrent neural sequence models coming in a few days
- Fall 2019: I'm grading for grad Machine Learning at NYU with prof. Ranganath
- Summer 2019: I'm working in Emtiyaz Khan's Approximate Bayesian Inference group at RIKEN AIP in Tokyo!
Previous to that, I studied music composition, improvisation, and theory at New England Conservatory with Anthony Coleman
, and Ran Blake
. I am still involved with music and rehearse with
Gamelan Kusuma Laras
, a classical Javanese ensemble that performs the repetoire of the courts of Central Java.
