Mit Kotak


Hiya ! I am a graduate student in MIT CSE working with Tess Smidt and Saman Amarasinghe. I am hoping to bring a systems perspective to the geometric deep learning community.

I did my undegrad in Engineering Physics at University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign where I was involved in numerical relativity, scientific computing and HPC middlewares. In addition to research, I also worked as an Undegraduate Research Ambassador for the Office of Undergraduate Research.
