I am a Prize Postdoctoral Fellow at Harvard University. I obtained my PhD from MIT Media Lab in February 2017, where my advisor was Ramesh Raskar. My research interests are in machine learning, computer vision, and their applications in economics. I have developed algorithms that quantify human perception of visual data at scale (e.g., Streetscore), along with methods to obtain measurements on populations, the built environment, and the economy from millions of geospatial images (e.g., Streetchange). Using these tools, I have studied economic activity and human behavior. I have also developed methods that reduce the need for human expertise and labor in building deep learning systems. Examples include AutoML algorithms for automatic design and training of deep neural networks and optimization techniques to train deep networks with small amounts of data. My industrial collaborations include and .
