### Biography

From SIMD to  $\inline&space;\sim&space;D$

I'm a PhD student at UC Berkeley, affiliated with Berkeley Artificial Intelligence Research, and supported by an NSF Fellowship. I work on machine learning and combinatorial optimization, with a special interest in systems applications. In Spring 2019, I graduated from MIT with an S.B. in Computer Science, where I was advised by Saman Amarasinghe and affiliated with the MIT COMMIT lab. I've also had the good fortune of working with Raquel Urtasun at Uber ATG.

If you go to MIT, you've likely received an email from me at some point about a machine learning reading group or talk -- from 2017-2018, I was the co-president of MIT MIC, and volunteered my time by ordering a tremendous amount of pizza to entice students to read papers together. Now, I sit on the board of the non-profit Machine Intelligence Community. In the past, I've organized HackMIT and Blueprint.
