Hi, I'm Jordan!

I'm a PhD student in the Stanford AI Lab, advised by Azalia Mirhoseini and Chris RĂ©. I did my undergrad at the University of Waterloo studying software engineering and optimization.

My degree at UWaterloo was part of the school's co-op program, allowing me to spend five years alternating between four months of classes and four months of full-time internship work. I've been lucky to work with some really great people across many different areas (listed here in mostly reverse chronological order):

  • I worked for a year and a half in the NVIDIA Toronto AI Lab (during and after my undergrad), researching language control for physics-based character animation. I collaborated with Professors Jason Peng and Sanja Fidler.
  • I interned twice at Facebook: once working on data pipelines for machine translation, and once working on neural image compression, where I helped create an open-source library for compression research.
  • I worked on sparse training algorithms for transformer-based language models at Cerebras.
  • At Groq, I helped build a prototype compiler that converts computational graphs into instructions for the company's ASIC.

Before I started at UWaterloo, I spent several summers as a biochemistry student researcher in the Kay lab at the University of Toronto, studying the ClpP protease.
