Welcome! I am a PhD student in Computer Science at Cornell University, where I am very fortunate to be advised by Jon Kleinberg. I am currently doing extended research with the Google Brain Team, where my mentors are Quoc Le and Samy Bengio. In the past, I’ve collaborated with Jascha Sohl-Dickstein and Surya Ganguli at Stanford.

Before Cornell, I was at the University of Cambridge (Trinity College) where I completed my Bachelors and Masters (Part III of the Tripos) in Mathematics. Prior to that I was very fortunate to spend my final years in high school competing in national and international mathematical Olympaids. The highlight was being part of the UK team at the China Girls Math Olympiad.

Research Interests

My research interests are broadly in machine learning, particularly deep learning. A specific research goal is to develop the Science of Deep Learning: understand and improve deep neural networks by combining systematic experiments with principled methods to provide robust conclusions. I am also interested in using these insights in healthcare applications.
