Aditya Grover



I am an assistant professor of computer science at UCLA. My research is centered around machine learning with limited supervision, and am currently focussing on probabilistic generative modeling and sequential decision making under uncertainty. I am also an affiliate faculty in the Institute of the Environment and Sustainability at UCLA, where I ground my foundations research in applications at the intersection of physical sciences and climate change.

Before joining UCLA, I was a research scientist in the Core ML team at FAIR in Meta. Previously, I completed my postdoctoral training at UC Berkeley (2021; advisor: Pieter Abbeel), PhD at Stanford University (2020; advisor: Stefano Ermon) and bachelors at IIT Delhi (2015; co-advisors: Mausam, Parag Singla), all in computer science. During my PhD, I spent wonderful summers interning at Google Brain, Microsoft Research, and OpenAI.
