I am pursuing my PhD in Computer Science at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, where I am a Research Assistant in the Rensselaer AI and Reasoning (RAIR) Lab. I recently graduated with a double Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science and Mathematical Sciences from Worcester Polytechnic Institute.

Research Interests

I believe it is essential that AI agents are able to provide justification and verification for their actions/decisions. That is, AI agents should be able to justify their decisions and verify that the decision is correct, follows a moral/legal code, etc., (most likely) by providing a proof or argument.

To that end, my research interests include automated reasoning, consistency-controlling logics, and artificial general intelligence. My current research is focused on defeasible reasoning – specifically, creating AI agents which can quantify the uncertainty of their beliefs in a cognitively-plausible way, and update their beliefs when they receive new information (which may be inconsistent with prior beliefs).
