Research Engineer

I am a Researcher at Meta AI Research, where I work on deep learning, reinforcement learning, generative image models, agents for video games and large-scale high-performance deep learning. Prior to joining Meta in August 2014, I worked at MuseAmi, where I built deep learning models for music and vision targeted at mobile devices. I hold a Masters in CS from NYU, and spent time in Yann LeCun’s NYU lab building deep learning models for pedestrian detection, natural image OCR, depth-images among others.
