I am a postdoctoral fellow in Swartz Program for Theoretical Neuroscience at Harvard University. My research interests are computational neuroscience, machine learning, and neural networks. Specifically, I have been working on problems related to invariance manifolds in neural networks using methods in statistical physics. In the past few years, I have been a visiting research student/fellow at 
 The Edmond & Lily Safra Center for Brain Sciences (formerly The Interdisciplinary Center for Neural Computationat the Hebrew University of Jerusalem
