Kanishk Gandhi

New York University



I am currently working with Prof. Brenden Lake at the Human & Machine Learning Lab on learning simple inductive biases with neural networks. I am a Master's Student at NYU and have recieved the Samuel Morse Fellowship. I have completed my undergraduate from IIT Kanpur majoring in Electrical Engineering. I am broadly interested in using concepts like compositionality, causality and learning to learn to advance current AI systems. During my time as an undergraduate I worked with Prof. Yao Wang from NYU on a couple of projects and had the fortune of visiting New York to work with her. During my master's, I enjoyed a stirring summer in Boston at PathAI, an computational pathology startup.

I am interested in playing tennis, visiting museums, writing poetry and painting.
