I am an applied researcher currently working at the intersection of Natural Language, Dialogue and Content Understanding. I also happen to have a prior background in Geometry, Imaging and Maps. I believe that creating agents capable of intelligent, contextual communication with world-grounded reasoning is an AI-hard problem, one that is well worth pursuing. I got into this field by way of Robin Labs, an "assistant" product / start-up company I cofounded prior to Google. This first-hand experience helped me realize the magnitude of the opportunity in intelligent language interfaces that can resonate with people on a profound level.
