I recently received my PhD from UC Berkeley where I was advised by Dawn Song and Jacob Steinhardt. I am now the director of the Center for AI Safety. I am interested in ML Safety. In 2018 I received my BS from UChicago. My research is supported by the NSF GRFP and the Open Philanthropy AI Fellowship. I helped contribute the GELU activation function (the most-used activation in state-of-the-art models including BERT, GPT, Vision Transformers, etc.), the out-of-distribution detection baseline, and distribution shift benchmarks.
