Alexander Amini

Graduate Student



Alexander Amini is a PhD student in the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology advised by Daniela Rus. Amini completed his Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at MIT, with a minor in Applied Mathematics. 

Amini's research focuses on machine learning algorithms for end-to-end control (i.e., perception to actuation) of autonomous systems and formulating guarantees for these deep learning algorithms. He has worked on control of autonomous vehicles, formulating confidence of deep neural networks, mathematical modeling of human mobility, as well as building complex inertial refinement systems.

In addition to research, Amini is a lead organizer and lecturer for MIT 6.S191: Introduction to Deep Learning, MIT's official introductory course on deep learning algorithms and their applications.
