I am interested in the computational and cognitive underpinnings of
human commonsense reasoning. A remarkable property of commonsense
reasoning is robustness, and an unfortunate property of most software is brittleness.
I believe that insights from commonsense reasoning will lead to the
next generation of software that is robust, flexible and intuitive.
Towards this end, in my thesis work, I have built systems that
generate ballpark estimates in scientific and commonsense domains
using strategies similar to humans.
Read more about it in the research section.
I am looking for academic and research positions in the intersection of Computation and Cognition. My job application packet is available online.
