I completed my PhD in machine learning at the University of Toronto in 2013. Subsequently, I held postdoctoral fellowships at the University of Toronto, under Geoffrey Hinton and Ruslan Salakhutdinov, and at the Harvard Center for Research on Computation and Society, under Ryan Adams. While at Harvard I co-founded the machine learning startup Whetlab, which was acquired by Twitter in 2015. Currently, I am a research scientist at Google Brain in Cambridge, MA.
