I am a first-year PhD student at Berkeley AI Research, advised by Alexei Efros. I work on teaching machines a high-level creative understanding of the dynamic real world, which I believe requires learning from video without manual supervision. I am also interested in language, machine learning, image synthesis, and interaction as they relate to this.
Previously, I worked with Chen Sun, Jiajun Wu, and Cordelia Schmid at Google Research. Before that, I graduated from Columbia University with a BS in computer science, where I was lucky to be introduced to computer vision and advised by Carl Vondrick.
