I'm interested in a lot of different things, including:

  • Solving problems and creating useful things
  • Figuring out how people's minds work, especially language/communication
  • Cooking, eating, growing plants, and not wasting food
  • Education/teaching
  • Making people's lives better
I spent most of 2017 working at Drumlin Farm, and I'm currently deciding what my next direction in life will be.

I used to work as a software engineer at Luminoso. Before that, I was at MIT, where I completed my MEng degree with Josh Tenenbaum in the Computational Cognitive Science group, and my undergraduate degrees in Brain and Cognitive Sciences and Computer Science and Engineering.
