I am a research scientist in the robotics team at Toyota Research.

I am also an affiliate assistant professor in computer science at UW and will join the department in fall 2021.

My research interests revolve around the empirical and theoretical foundations of machine learning, often with a focus on datasets and making machine learning more reliable.

Until recently, I spent three wonderful years as a postdoc at UC Berkeley where my advisors were Moritz Hardt and Ben Recht. Before coming to Berkeley, I received my PhD from MIT, where I was fortunate to be advised by Piotr Indyk and collaborated on several projects with Aleksander Mądry. During my PhD I also spent time at Google Brain working with Yoram Singer and Kunal Talwar.
