Eric Nalisnick is an assistant professor of computer science at the Johns Hopkins University. In his work, he aims to build safe and robust intelligent systems. To this end, Nalisnick develops statistical machine learning methods that allow such systems to quantify their uncertainty and to interact with human experts. His research also applies these methodological innovations to problems in health care, computer vision, and sign language processing.
Before joining Johns Hopkins, Nalisnick was an assistant professor at the University of Amsterdam and a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Cambridge; he has also worked in research roles at Google DeepMind, Microsoft, Amazon, and Twitter. He received a PhD from the University of California, Irvine (2018) and MS and BS degrees from Lehigh University (2012, 2013).
