I am a first-year PhD student in computer science at Courant, where I work on probabilistic inference. I am lucky to be advised by:



Previously, I was a research assistant and teaching fellow in the Computer Science department at Harvard SEAS, where I worked primarily with Margo Seltzer and taught primarily for Finale Doshi-Velez and Sasha Rush. Between Harvard and NYU, I worked with the CoCoSci group at MIT BCS on model-based RL under Pedro Tsividis and Josh Tenenbaum.

Previous to that, I studied music composition, improvisation, and theory at New England Conservatory with Anthony Coleman, Stratis Minakakis, and Ran Blake. I am still involved with music, and currently rehearse with Gamelan Kusuma Laras, a Javanese Gamelan ensemble.

My pronouns are he/him/his. Let’s encourage asking over assuming by including our pronouns.
