I'm a PhD student at Harvard, in the Theory Group and the Harvard ML Theory Group. I'm advised by Madhu Sudan. This summer I'm interning at OpenAI, with Ilya Sutskever.

  • Our new paper on the dynamics of SGD on neural-networks.
  • A short paper on adversarial examples in machine-learning.


I did my undergrad in EECS at UC Berkeley, and have previously interned with the speech-team at Google.
