I am currently a Principle Machine Learning Engineer at BENLabs. I work on building out infrastructure to serve large models at scale along with tackling problems related to creating value from generative models. I think a lot about how to use LLMs to improve human communication. If you’re curious, take a look at a company I started Mpathic.

In a past life I worked on building new products based on large amounts of healthcare data, tried my hand at a PhD in computer science focused on understanding representation learngin. I am interested in developing, implementing, and understanding algorithms that are capable of acquiring new knowledge and automatically adapting their behaviour over time.
