I'm Darian, a 2nd Year Ph.D. Student

I am largely interested in building end-to-end systems that incorporate the use of Machine Learning and AI.

I am a second-year Ph.D. student in the Department of Computer Science at Cornell University working directly with David Bindel, Ph.D. I came to Cornell after receiving a degree in Computer Science from Morehouse College. After graduating, I completed a summer internship at Adobe Inc. as a Dialog Systems, NLP, & ASP Intern in San Jose, California, where I worked on integrating voice and gesture commands to manipulate 2-D photos on mobile devices.

In undergrad, I interned at Google Inc. and conducted research at Stanford University and Morehouse College in fields ranging from mathematical biology to human-computer interaction. My work in mathematical biology under the supervision of Shelby Wilson, Ph.D. led to my interest in machine learning.

My research interest include:

  • Machine Learning & AI
  • Machine Learning Systems
  • Scientific Computing
I am largely interested in applied machine learning, under the guise of scientific computing. A few application areas of interest are personalized health, personalized medicine and financial engineering.
