About Me

I am a Master's student at the University of Toronto where my advisor is Yang Xu. Currently, I am a visiting researcher with Tom Griffiths and the Computational Cognitive Science Lab at Princeton University. I am very fortunate to have my research supported by a Vector Scholarship in Artificial Intelligence.

I have worked on investigating the relationship between semantic representations and human judgments, cognitive models of language evolution, and training deep generative models.

Outreach

MISE is an intensive summer camp for bright high school students to learn about cutting-edge research in engineering and other sciences. I was recently a research mentor at MISE in Ghana where I taught a select group of students about machine learning and its applications to computer security. I hope my efforts will motivate them to one day become leaders in these fields and transform the global R&D landscape.
