Erik Jones

Hello! I am a first year Ph.D. student in computer science at Berkeley advised by Jacob Steinhardt. I am affiliated with the Berkeley AI Research Lab.

Before starting at Berkeley, I received my B.S. in math and M.S. in computer science from Stanford, where I was advised by Percy Liang. I am interested in making future machine learning systems robust, reliable, and aligned.
