Aaron Tucker

PhD Student
Cornell University
I am a second year PhD student in Computer Science at Cornell University, where I am fortunate to be advised by Thorsten Joachims. I graduated from Harvard College in 2016, then worked as a software engineer doing antifraud for Sendwave. I previously interned at UC Berkeley’s Center for Human-Compatible AI researching inverse reinforcement learning, and was a summer fellow at the Centre for the Governance of AI at the University of Oxford.
