I am a PhD student in Computer Science at Stanford University. I am interested in developing intelligent, autonomous systems that are safe and reliable when deployed in practice – especially in settings where they interact with human beings.
I recently graduated from the University of California, Berkeley in the Fall of 2017, with a Bachelor's degree in Applied Mathematics. Outside research, I spent much of my time there teaching.
In my spare time, I help run the Palan Foundation, an educational non-profit based in Malaysia.
I also go by the name Malayandi Palaniappan (on formal documentation and publications). You can reach me at malayandi12 AT gmail DOT com.
