I am a 5th year Phd student in Computer Science at Brown University, advised by Daniel Ritchie.

Things that (I try to believe) are my research interests:

  • Learning to generate shapes, rooms, floors and Cities: Skylines
  • Finding new approaches in modeling 3D datas and graph-structured datas.
  • Understanding the human design process, and finding the right sequence of machine learning models to recreate this process. (and why I am a horrible designer myself)

Things that (I fail to convince myself) are not my research interests:

  • Finding the correct inductive bias for modeling tonal music, particularly through transformational theory of music.
  • Modeling the audio perceptory process, for speech, music and other sounds.
  • Non-photorealistic rendering in the style of anime.
  • Physical simulation for sound and voice acting.
  • Understanding and modeling subjective opinions on different media of art.
  • Designing neural networks for any tasks that require abstract reasoning, human creativity and memeing.
  • The hard problem of consciousness, and how that can shed light into current machine learning
  • 42

I spent my undergraduate time in the middle of no where and wasted too much time messing around with random stuff (and put too little time into actual computer science). I totally did not regret that though, and I still enjoyed all the exposures in music theory, studio arts, cognitive science (though I forgot to declare that as a minor/concentration) and many other things.
