Sreejan Kumar

Hello! My name is Sreejan. I recently graduate from Yale University with majors in Computer Science and Statistics & Data Science. During undergrad, I worked with Marvin Chun and Nicholas Turk-Browne (dept of Psychology). I am now a PhD student at the Princeton Neuroscience Institute, where I am advised by Tom Griffiths (depts Psychology & Computer Science) and Jon Cohen (depts Psychology & Neuroscience).

I am broadly interested in the study of intelligence in both humans and artificial agents. I believe to fully understand how the brain produces natural intelligence and to build human-level artificial intelligence are two sides of the same coin. Concretely, I am interested in the combining of large-scale online behavior experiments/brain imaging tools with advances in machine learning to drive novel understanding of the human brain, applying methodologies/experiments from cognitive science/cognitive neuroscience to understand current AI systems, and combining both of these approaches to work towards creating more human-like artificial intelligence.
