Kenny Peng

I am a first-year computer science PhD student at Cornell. Previously, I completed my undergraduate degree in mathematics at Princeton, where I was lucky to work closely with Arvind Narayanan and Evita Nestoridi.

I am particularly interested in the societal implications of machine learning and algorithmic decision-making.
