Hi, I'm Alex! I am a PhD candidate at the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Harvard University. I am fortunate to be advised by Prof. Demba Ba. My interests lie at the intersection of AI, statistics, and signal processing. Currently, my research focuses on the following areas:

  • Generative modeling and scalable Bayesian inference

  • Neural networks and deep learning

  • Machine learning applications to science and medicine

You can check out my work here and on my Google Scholar.

Prior to my PhD, I worked for one year as a machine learning researcher at ASAPP. Before that, I completed my Bachelor's and Master's degrees at Harvard from 2015 to 2019. More information can be found here and on my LinkedIn.

I am affiliated with the Computation, Representations, and Inference in Signal Processing (CRISP) group at Harvard and the National Science Foundation's Institute for Artificial Intelligence and Fundamental Interactions (IAIFI).

Occasionally, I write technical posts on The Active Learning Blog.
