Bio

I am a PhD student (MEng/SB 2016) in Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence. I am a member of the Probabilistic Computing Project where we design and build probabilistic systems. My research interests are in probabilistic AI, computational formalisms of probability theory, and algorithmic approaches to statistical data analysis.

Research

A Probabilistic Programming Approach To Probabilistic Data Analysis
Saad, F. and Mansinghka, V. Advances In Neural Information Processing Systems, 2016 [PDF].
Journal version in review, preprint at arXiv:1608.05347. [PDF]

Teaching

Fall 2016: TA for Introduction to Probabilistic Programming, a graduate seminar at MIT.

Writing

I wrote various musings over the years in The Tech, MIT's dwindling student newspaper.
I also periodically write notes and ideas in Random Seed.
