More generally, I have a keen interest in computer vision, deep learning, nonlinear optimization, systems architecture, and symbolic computation. I was born in Armenia and grew up in Alaska before studying at Princeton and Stanford. In my free time I enjoy playing guitars and drums, traveling, soccer, bughouse, and flying things.
