I am a research scientist at DeepMind in London, where I study topics in machine learning and optimization. I did my PhD at the University of Maryland, where I was advised by Dana Nau and Tom Goldstein. During my PhD, I studied fast stochastic optimization algorithms for machine learning problems. I also worked on building game-theoretic models of human behavior, where I closely collaborated with Michele Gelfand. I have previously interned at the Toyota Technological Institute at Chicago (TTIC) and IBM Research Almaden.

I am interested broadly in topics in machine learning and optimization. My current focus is in studying optimization and generalization on neural networks. I am also interested in robust and verifiable machine learning models, generative models and game theory.
