I'm a research scientist at OpenAI, where I work on reinforcement learning (RL), especially related to transfer learning and meta-learning. I lead the Games Team, where we (mostly) use games as a testbed for reinforcement learning.

Previously, I received my PhD in Computer Science from UC Berkeley, where I had the good fortune of being advised by Pieter Abbeel. Prior to my recent work in RL, I spent some time working on robotics, enabling robots to tie knots and stitches and plan movement using trajectory optimization.
