Benjamin Recht

Electrical Engineering & Computer Sciences

 I have mentored undergraduate, graduate students, and junior faculty in Computer Science at Berkeley since I arrived in 2013. I look forward to working with faculty at the assistant and associate levels to navigate their way towards success at Berkeley.


Benjamin Recht's research group studies how to make machine learning systems more robust to interactions with a dynamic and uncertain world. They are particularly interested in making machine learning more scientific and safe by recognizing where conventional wisdom is incorrect and by establishing reliable benchmarks and baselines to measure performance. Their work is enriched by collaborations with researchers from applied fields including computational imaging and robotics.
