Research Overview

interests

Broadly, I’m motivated by the goals of building machine learning systems that generalize strongly (extrapolating rather than interpolating); while requiring less data (greater sample efficiency); and which acquire interpretable knowledge that humans can understand and build on. I draw on ideas and techniques from machine learning, artificial intelligence, programming languages, and cognitive science. More specifically, I have been building AI systems that represent knowledge in the form of symbolic code, and treat learning as program synthesis.
