I am a Research Scientist at DeepMind. My current research interests are in building compositional generative models, and the associated inference and learning problems.
Before DeepMind, I worked for 3 years as a Research Scientist at Vicarious AI (acquired by Alphabet). I obtained my Ph.D. in applied math at Brown University, advised by Prof. Stuart Geman, and my bachelor degrees from Peking University.
