Adam Lerer

Research Engineer

I am a research engineer at Facebook AI Research, where I work on infrastructure and algorithms for machine learning. Prior to joining Facebook, I worked at D. E. Shaw Research, where I developed software and algorithms for Anton, a special-purpose supercomputer for molecular dynamics simulation. I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in computer science and physics and a Master of Engineering degree in computer science from MIT.
