Hello! I'm Jack, and I'm studying computer science and neuroscience at MIT. I also work on natural language processing at The New York Times R&D. Starting in 2023, I will be attending Oxford University on a Rhodes scholarship.
I previously interned at NVIDIA research, and I was on the founding team of Mixer (formerly Beam), winner of TechCrunch Disrupt in 2016 and acquired by Microsoft in 2018. I was also previously the director of HackMIT and Blueprint.
