I am participating in the Special Year at the Insitute for Advanced Study in Princeton and a Senior Research Scientist at DeepMind.
I will be joining the Departments of Computer Science and Statistical Sciences at the University of Toronto and the Vector Institute as an assistant professor in July 2020.
I work on methods for machine learning, with an emphasis on those that work at scale in deep learning applications. I am particularly interested in methods for numerical integration and optimization. So far I have worked on gradient estimation, variational inference, Monte Carlo methods, and first-order methods for optimization.
I am an Open Philanthropy AI Fellow. I received a NIPS Best Paper Award in 2014, and was one of the founding members of the AlphaGo project.
