AI Scientist



I am a AI Scientist at Paige AI. I did my Ph.D. with Jennifer Dy, Dana Brooks, and Jan-Willem van de Meent at Northeastern University. My main research interests are machine learning with emphasis on probabilistic programming, deep neural networks, and their applications in biomedical image processing. I am one of the developers of Probabilistic Torch, a library for deep generative models that extends PyTorch. I am also one of the maintainers of the Pytorch distributions module.
