Elan Rosenfeld

Hi! I'm a PhD student in the Machine Learning Department at CMU where I am fortunate to be advised by Pradeep Ravikumar and Andrej Risteski. Before entering grad school I was a software engineer at Google NYC where I worked on Search Infrastructure. Before that I graduated from CMU with degrees in computer science and statistics & machine learning.

I'm broadly interested in the foundational aspects of human intelligence that we take for granted, in particular robustness, representation learning, and out-of-distribution generalization. I'm also intrigued by the seemingly sub-optimal choices we make as described by cumulative prospect theory and the potential benefits of such behavior.
