I'm a senior research scientist at Google Brain. My research interests lie broadly in machine learning, statistics, and optimization.
I was a postdoc with Ryan Adams in the Harvard Intelligent Probabilistic Systems (HIPS) group and Bob Datta in the Datta Lab in Neurobiology at the Harvard Medical School.
I was a Ph.D. student in EECS at MIT. I worked with Alan Willsky in the Stochastic Systems Group, which is part of LIDS and also strongly connected to CSAIL. My thesis committee included Ryan Adams, David Blei, and Tommi Jaakkola.
I am married to the wonderful and lovely Lily Johnson (that's us at the top!).
