I am interested in modeling sequences and sequential decision-making problems. Before joining Google, I was a research scientist on the Amazon Speech team in Boston. My focus was on designing deep learning models for small-footprint keyword spotting. Before joining Amazon, I was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Price lab at the Harvard School of Public Health. I worked on methods for risk prediction and association testing in studies with related individuals. I conducted my PhD research in the MIT Mathematics department in Professor Bonnie Berger's research group.
