Hi there!

I am researching away at Microsoft Research (MSR AI) , where I was an AI Resident working with the Adaptive Systems and Interaction Group. I received a B.S. in Cognitive Science and B.A. in Global Affairs from Yale, where I spent four wonderful years with Brian Scassellati. I'll be starting my Ph.D. at MIT CSAIL at some point.

I’m intrigued by how decisions are made, in both humans and machines. By formalizing the cognitive principles that underlie how we observe and reason in our environment, I hope to build intelligent agents that learn and plan with humans. I also dabble on projects with AI for Earth.

I find myself growing ever more concerned that the world isn’t using AI safely, fairly, or ethically. To that end, I've worked at the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) and with the Partnership on AI on understanding the impacts of technology.

The best way to reach me is andipeng [at] mit [dot] edu. Preferred subject line: Your cat is dope.
