RESEARCH BIO CONTACT

Since 2012 I've been working at Duolingo, where I currently lead a team devoted to optimizing learning efficacy. From 2008-2012 I worked on AdWords at Google.

In December 2007 I graduated from the CMU Computer Science PhD program, after defending my thesis. I then spent a semester as a postdoc in the CMU Robotics Institute, working with my graduate advisor Stephen Smith.

Before coming to CMU I worked with John Koza at Genetic Programming, Inc. using evolutionary algorithms to synthesize analog electrical circuits. In 2005 we received a patent for one of our evolved circuits. It is one of the first patents ever granted for a machine-generated invention, and has prompted a patent law puzzle as well as some theological confusion.
