I'm Aalok / आलोक / [alok/alɵk]
I work at the MIT Dept. of Brain and Cognitive Sciences as a Research Associate at EvLab. There, I work on many exciting projects related to the processing and representation of language and meaning in minds and machines.
I did my B.S. in Computer Science + Cognitive Science at the University of Richmond, VA, USA ('21). Before college, I lived in Pune, India.

Even more broadly, I am interested in intelligent behavior in complex systems.
- how do complex systems originate and evolve? how does intelligent behavior emerge in complex systems? how do complex systems represent information about the world and operate on it through specialized computations?
- how can we best use computational models to understand complex intelligent behavior?
In my free time I like to play football (soccer), cook, hike, ride my bicycle, play board games, and sing and listen to Hindustani classical music and The Beatles.
