I am a third year PhD student in Operations Research at the MIT ORC advised by Dimitris Bertsimas studying large-scale optimization, broadly applied. I am especially interested in understanding and reducing the risks posed by advanced artificial intelligence systems. Currently, this involves deeply understanding the learned representations and circuits of LLMs in the hope of maintaining oversight and diagnosing failures of increasingly capable models. In the past, I have done research on dynamical systems modeling, fair algorithms for congressional redistricting, and natural language processing.
