about

I'm an engineer at Cohere. I lead our data infrastructure and data quality work, building resilient data pipelines for neural networks and researching the effects that different kinds of training data have on large transformer models. I'm interested in critically examine modelling benchmarks to better align with the tasks we hope for them to perform. Here's some recent work.

Previously, I was at Shopify where I worked on Kubernetes ingress and routing infrastructure for a fleet of 50+ clusters (fun fact: it's one of the largest Kubernetes deployments in Google Cloud) and on Sections Everywhere, the biggest update to the Online Store Editor in the history of the company. Here's a talk I did about some of it.

I've built web/iOS apps and factory software for managing robotics inside Gigafactories at Tesla. I helped rollout our software for the opening of Gigafactory Shanghai.

I studied electrical & computer engineering in school where I built some useful robots and also some less useful robots.

I enjoy building my ideas, especially ones that no one asked for.
