I work on topics in machine learning and theoretical neuroscience with the goal of understanding general principles of neural coding and computation, and their technological applications.

I joined Georgia Tech faculty in January 2022.

I teach CSE 8803: Computational Methods for Complex Systems in the Spring semester.
