About me

I am an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at the University of Toronto, focusing on machine learning. Previously, I was a postdoc at Toronto, after having received my Ph.D. at MIT, studying under Bill Freeman and Josh Tenenbaum. Before that, I did my undergraduate degree in symbolic systems and MS in computer science at Stanford University.

I am a co-creator of Metacademy, a web site which helps you formulate personalized learning plans for machine learning and related topics. It’s based on a dependency graph of the core concepts. I also recently taught an undergraduate neural networks course at the University of Toronto.
