About me

Currently an undergraduate (Class of 2018) in physics (CS, English minors) at Caltech.
Worked previously as software engineering / applications intern at Rigetti Quantum Computing.
Prior to that, spent two summers researching at Caltech.

Primarily interested in hard problems, highly-functional solutions, and work that transcends categories and boundaries.
Current interests: theoretical underpinnings of deep learning, deep generative models, dynamics of learning representations, phase transitions in condensed matter, statistical learning, information theory, consumer fintech, ML for drug discovery / materials science
Hobbies: reading, fitness (lifting, sprinting, climbing, swimming), and food.
