Alex is a second year computer science phd student at Yale University. His research interests are in machine learning and algorithms. Currently, he is working on structuring latent representations using ideas from graph theory and deep learning in the Krishnaswamy Lab advised by Smita Krishnaswamy.
Alex grew up in Seattle, Washington. He completed B.S. and M.S. degrees in computer science from Tufts University in 2017. He splits his spare time between racing sailboats and trail running.
Work in the Krishnaswamy Lab using spectral regularization on neural network layers to impose structure between inter-layer structure.

At Tufts I focused heavily on algorithms and machine learning taking classes like computational geometry, advanced algorithms, statistical pattern recognition, and deep learning for computer vision. I also was a teaching assistant for Cryptography, Algorithms, and Machine Architecture courses.
I was also Co-Captain of the Sailing Team my senior year. Go Jumbos!
I worked in modifying state of the art Object Detection systems for application to driver assistance in cars.
Ab Initio makes high performance data processing tools. I worked on adding statistics tracking to their existing Hadoop integration.
I designed and implemented an OpenCV based visual localization algorithm using 2.5D hardware in an Amazon warehouse application.
North Reading, MA
I worked on a small scale Hadoop Map-reduce cluster in an early stage startup looking to put processing power closer to sensors
Away from my studies, I enjoy most of my time outdoors. I am a competitive sailor, and enjoy trail running and backpacking.
When forced indoors, I love a good board game, or moaning about the weather.
