Vaishaal Shankar


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.
