I am a Senior Research Scientist at DeepMind. My research focuses on Mechanism Design and Multi-agent Systems.
I obtained my PhD from MIT where I was part of the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. My thesis advisor was Tomaso Poggio.
Before Graduate School I was part of the Equipment Controls and Electronic section in the Engineering Department at CERN.
