George Matheos

PhD Student



I’m a 1st year PhD student at MIT studying computer science. My research is advised by Vikash Mansinghka, Josh Tenenbaum, and Leslie Kaelbling.

I recently completed my undergraduate studies in math and computer science at UC Berkeley. At Berkeley, my research was advised by Stuart Russell.

During the year of 2020-2021, I worked full-time as a researcher at the MIT Probabilistic Computing Project.
