I am a postdoc at MIT with Aleksander Madry. Previously, I worked with Zico Kolter as a PhD student in the Machine Learning Department at Carnegie Mellon University, where I wrote my dissertation on robustness of deep networks to adversarial examples, which you can find here. My research interests touch on machine learning, robust optimization, and verification.
In my quest to simplify the current state of matrix differential calculus, I have been working on a more elegant, simplified form of taking derivatives of functions regardless of the input and output shape, with more direct implementation. This has resulted in the following series, which continues to grow as I use what I've learned so far.
I am an avid dancer in the ballroom, latin, and hip hop styles.
I am also an enthusiastic cook, and love experimenting with different ingredients. I occasionally post pictures of my creations on Instagram
