I am a research scientist with the Machine Learning Research group at Apple.

I am broadly interested in the foundations of machine learning My work has recently been focused on the interplay between dataset design, multi-modality and distributional robustness. I have been fortunate to be a part of the ImageNetV2 and OpenCLIP projects.

Previously I spent 9 wonderful years at UC berkeley and had the pleasure of working with Ben Recht , Ludwig Schmidt , Eric Jonas , Shivaram Venkataraman and many others.
