Current Research

My long-term scientific goal is to solve fundamental problems in AI, particularly the unsupervised learning problem. My research blends machine learning, statistical mechanics, and computational neuroscience towards that goal.


I finished my PhD at MIT in theoretical physics with Patrick Lee, where I worked on quantum field theories for strongly correlated systems. I did my postdoc with Terry Sejnowski at the Salk Institute, where I developed a novel framework for image modeling. In 2016 moved to UC Berkeley as a Researcher at the Redwood Center for Theoretical Neuroscience. My recent works have been on generative adversarial networks, score matching networks, and higher-order Hopfield networks.
