I'm a second-year PhD student in computer science. My interests are generally in high-dimensional probabilistic inference. I was previously at Quora for three years where I helped start the machine learning team and before that an undergraduate at CMU where I worked with Sidd Srinivasa on computer vision and robotic manipulation.

I'm currently on academic leave working on perception for autonomous navigation at my startup Helm.ai.
