humans + machines = ?



I want to make machine learning systems more robust and reliable. I am interested in how interaction with humans can help ensure that a system has learned the correct objective or behavior.

I am a 1st-year PhD student at Berkeley advised by Anca Dragan and Moritz Hardt. In Summer 2017 I was a research intern at OpenAI. I am a part of the Berkeley Artificial Intelligence Research Lab and the Center for Human-Compatible AI .

I introspect a lot on my own styles of thinking and productivity. Here is some collected research advice. Outside of research I enjoy talking to strangers, reading both nonfiction and fiction, and recently improv.
