Theophile Gervet


I am a PhD student at the Machine Learning Department at Carnegie Mellon University, working on embodied AI and computer vision to make mobile manipulators useful with Prof. Katerina Fragkiadaki. Prior to joining CMU, I graduated from McGill University, Canada, with a B.Sc. in Computer Science & Mathematics, where I worked with Profs. Doina Precup and Joelle Pineau. In 2020-2022, I took a leave from the PhD to build the ML team of an early-stage data privacy startup.

In my spare time, I enjoy good food and wine, nature and traveling, and lifting weights while listening to history/philosophy podcasts. Also, I grew up in Paris, and my English accent has long been stuck at a local optimum.

I sometimes share thoughts about ML and robotics here.
