Hi,


I am a Phd Candidate in the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL) at MIT, studying Machine Learning under the supervision of Prof. Tommi Jaakkola.

My research is focused on settings involving structured data. Ongoing projects include:

  • Perturbation models
  • Compositional generative models
