I am a second year undergraduate student at MIT currently studying Computer Science and Mathematics. I currently work in the Programming Systems Group (PSG) led by Michael Carbin, and I am supervised by Alex Renda. At PSG I have led both a project on Transformers that are invariant to variable renamings and an empirical investigation of the effect data dimensionality has on neural network prunability. I also work at MosaicML, where I am studying the pre-training of large encoder language models.
In general I am interested in a variety of topics and happy to chat about anything ML related at all so reach out. My biggest focus in my current ongoing research is improving large language model pre-training and energy models for language modeling.
