I received my undergraduate degree in Computer Engineering and Applied Mathematics under the guidance of Benjamin Snyder; Graduate Degree in Computer Science under the guidance of Robert Nowak and Rebecca Willett -from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. From 2017-2023, I was employed by Amazon under the supervision of Daniel Marcu, as a scientist to work on Amazon and Alexa search.

In July 2022, I decided to switch focus from machine learning and pursue a doctoral degree in theoretical computer science under the supervision of Graham Cormode at the University of Warwick. I was awarded the Chancellors International Scholarship, which supports my doctoral studies.

Everything I write here reflects my own thoughts and not of the people or companies I’ve worked with. My thoughts often mimick those of Eric Idle: “Bally Jerry pranged his kite right in the how’s-your-father; hairy blighter, dicky-birded, feathered back on his sammy, took a waspy, flipped over on his Betty Harpers and caught his can in the Bertie.”



Authors are listed in alphabetical order of last name. An underline under authors’ name reflects that they were the primary authors. Otherwise, it is safe to assume equal contribution.

NEXT is a computational framework and open-source machine learning system that simplifies the deployment and evaluation of active learning algorithms that use human feedback, e.g. from Mechanical Turk. The system is optimized for the real-time computational demands of active learning algorithms and built to scale to handle a crowd of workers any size. The system is for active learning researchers as well as practitioners who want to collect data adaptively.
