Hello! My name is Noah. I build machine learning systems to measure and monitor forests at Pachama. Previously, I was a machine learning researcher at OpenAI. Before that I completed my undergrad degree in math and computer science at UC Berkeley, where I did research in the RISELab. From a research angle, I am particularly interested in non-convex optimization, dynamical systems theory, and how we can construct a theoretical language to explain the success of recent deep learning phenomena.
