I am a Prize Postdoctoral Fellow at Harvard University and MIT. I obtained my PhD from MIT in 2017, where my advisor was Ramesh Raskar. My research interests are in machine learning, computer vision, and their applications in economics. In the past, I have worked as an intern/visiting research scientist at Google, Microsoft Research, and Samsung Research America. My work has been covered by media outlets including The Atlantic, The Economist, MIT Technology Review, and New York Times.

In my research, I have developed methods that reduce the need for human expertise and labor in building deep learning systems. Examples include algorithms for neural architecture search and their optimization. I have also developed algorithms that quantify human perception of visual data at scale (e.g., Streetscore) and tools that obtain novel socioeconomic measurements from millions of geospatial images (e.g., Streetchange).
I have been fortunate to advise the following research students at MIT and Harvard:
These students have been funded through generous grants from Harvard's Star Family Challenge for Promising Scientific Research, Google, and the International Growth Centre.
