I currently work at Alpaca, a company I cofounded in 2022 with William Buchwalter.

Until recently, I was a graduate student at the Montreal Institute for Learning Algorithms (Universite de Montreal) under the supervision of Laurent Charlin, where I was broadly interested in the empirical study of deep neural networks. In particular, my work studied the dynamics of learning at scale, with a focus on large language models.

I have been extremely fortunate to have worked with number of excellent people in the past, including Jonathan Frankle at MosaicML, Benjamin Bratton and Nicolay Boyadjiev at The Terraforming, and a talented group of researchers at Microsoft Research Montreal.

Once upon a time, my summers were spent riding in helicopters, planting trees, and roaming around northern Canada.
