I am a 2nd year computer science PhD student at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I am currently working with Professor Derek Hoiem. Previously, I received my bachelor's and Masters of Engineering degrees in computer science from MIT in 2019 and 2020. At MIT, I was a member of the ALFA Group .
July 2021: Our Learning Curves paper was presented at ICML.
May 2021: I will be interning at Amazon this summer
Aug 2020: Started PhD program at UIUC July 2020: Presented at SecDef GECCO workshop
My current research interests are in meta-learning, transfer learning and life-long learning, particularly within the context of computer vision. I am interested in how we can develop models that easily and efficiently adapt to new tasks in different types of environments. Previously, I did research on using evolutionary algorithms for cyber security.
In this work, we use learning curves to investigate the effects of various design choices on neural network performance. We propose a method for estimating learning curves, abstract their parameters into error and data-reliance, and evaluate the effectiveness of different parameterizations.
