Program area(s):   

Cognitive Science and Language Processing

Graduate advisor:   Prof. Robert J. Brunner, Astronomy

Research:

My research interests are in the field of Machine Learning and recently I have become interested in how Deep Neural Networks learn.

This past summer I explored the utility of synthetic data for training deep-learning systems to be used in real-world settings.

I’m currently working with Dr. Brunner to further improve a tool that acts as a meta-language for expressing machine learning operations.
