Publications Talks Teaching Code Datasets

I'm a research scientist in the Fundamental AI Research (FAIR) team at Meta AI. My current area of interest is applying ML to computational chemistry for addressing the energy challenges posed by climate change. Previous areas of interest include scientific applications of AI, computer vision, language and vision, creativity and computational photography. For more details please see my publications page. Previously, I spent 12 great years at Microsoft Research, and obtained a PhD in Robotics from CMU's Robotics Institute.
