Students already admitted to CMU:
Please e-mail me, and we can set up a time to talk. If you have been
admitted, but are not yet at CMU, we can discuss over e-mail or a call;
you may be able to start research early. You can find out more about
my research here; also
check out our Foundations of
Cooperative AI Lab (FOCAL).
Students not yet admitted to CMU:
page for details on applying to programs in CMU's School of
Computer Science. (By default, to work with me, CSD is probably
easiest, but in principle I can advise in any SCS PhD
program, and I also have an appointment in MLD. Please reach out if you wonder whether maybe you should be
outside of SCS; I may be able to advise there too but this requires
more coordination. I do have appointments in Philosophy and Tepper.)
Please do not send e-mail to
me personally to apply (or obtain an estimate of your chances of
admission, etc.). Unfortunately, I have neither the time nor the authority
to run my own personal admissions committee. If you are a strong
applicant, and you
specifically mention that you are interested in working with me in your
application to CMU, I should hear about it. I apologize for not being
more helpful and wish you the best of luck in applying to schools.
Oxford / University of Pittsburgh:
I am in Oxford only a small fraction of the year, so to be
advised primarily by me it's better to be at CMU. Nevertheless if you're
already at Oxford or there are other considerations, please reach out.
I have no formal appointment at the University of Pittsburgh but it's right next to CMU!
