My research interests consist of learning how to move and making pretty pictures.

Currently an AI Resident at Intel Intelligent Systems Lab.
Incoming computer science PhD student at University of Texas at Austin.
Prior to Intel, I graduated BS Math ‘16, BS CS ‘17, and MS CSEM ‘18 at UT Austin.

Controlled experiments indicate that explicit intermediate representations help action.
Don't let your Discriminator be fooled

A discriminator that is not easily fooled by adversarial examples makes GAN training more robust and leads to a smoother objective.
GPU accelerated k-nearest neighbor kernel for sparse feature datasets

KNN on sparse features can be accelerated on the GPU using sparse GEMM routines and parallelized bitonic sort.


When I’m not working, I’m probably watching or playing video games.
