I primarily want to understand and replicate how the mind works. I am a PhD student in the Brain and Cognitive Sciences Department (BCS) and in the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL).
I am interested in the interaction of symbolic probabilistic reasoning and sub-symbolic statistical learning in the attempt to understand and replicate higher level cognition in a human-cognitively meaningful way. To do so, I explore models that combine structured generative frameworks like probabilistic programs, with deep learning. I care about things like compositionality and the origin of concepts. My advisor is Josh Tenenbaum.
