Google Research

Ben Poole


I'm a research scientist at Google Brain, where I work on deep generative models and understanding neural networks.

I did my PhD at Stanford University advised by Surya Ganguli in the Neural Dynamics and Computation lab. My thesis was on computational tools to develop a better understanding of both biological and aritficial neural networks. I did my undergrad at Carnegie Mellon University, where I was advised by Tai Sing Lee. I've worked at DeepMind, Google Research, Intel Research Pittsburgh, and the NYU Center for Neural Science.
