About me

I am a research engineer at the Center for AI Safety. I earned my Ph.D. from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Virginia. During my tenure there, I was a member of the Imaging and Data Science Lab, where I worked under the supervision of Prof. Gustavo K. Rohde.

Research interests

  • Adversarial Machine Learning: Detecting adversarial examples and robust classification
  • Generative Modeling: Employ adversarial training to learn energy-based generative models
  • Multimodal Learning: Use RNN language models to generative descriptive language from object layouts
