I'm Jillian Ross, a first year PhD student and Presidential Fellow at MIT EECS. At MIT, I'm working on interpretable AI under the advisement of Dr. Aude Oliva at the Computer Science & Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL). I am also a SERC Scholar.

I recently graduated magna cum laude from Columbia Engineering, where I studied computer science and philosophy. At Columbia, I was fortunate to work with Professor Carl Vondrick on problems in multimodal deep learning. I was also fortunate to spend two wonderful summers conducting research in London at BlueCove Limited, a scientific fixed income asset management firm. In addition to research, I was involved in the entrepreneurial ecosystem on campus.

You can reach me at jillian [at] csail [dot] mit [dot] edu. I keep a personal journal with writings about philosophy, artificial intelligence, law, venture capital, and financial markets, which you can take a peek at here.
