I am a Research Scientist at Google AI in Mountain View, California, working on machine learning research. Previously, I was a PhD student in the Machine Learning Department at Carnegie Mellon University, co-advised by Tom Mitchell and Barnabàs Pòczos. My PhD research focused on developing algorithms for machine learning, mainly focused on semi-supervised learning, curriculum learning, multitask learning, and graph-based problems. I am also passionate about applying machine learning methods in neuroscience, in order to study how the brain understands language and controls speech. Previously, I did some research in Computer Vision, with the goal of detecting and tracking objects in videos.
