Portrait of Adith Swaminathan

Adith Swaminathan



I am a researcher in the Reinforcement Learning Group at Microsoft Research AI.

I study principles and algorithms that can improve human-centered systems using machine learning and counterfactual reasoning.

I spent the 2015-16 academic year visiting the Information and Language Processing Systems group at the University of Amsterdam, interned with the Machine Learning group at Microsoft Research NYC during the summer of 2015, Computer Human Interactive Learning group (now called Machine Teaching Group) at Microsoft Research Redmond during the summer of 2013, Search Labs at Microsoft Research during the summer of 2012, and worked as a strategist with Tower Research Capital for 14 months from June 2010 – July 2011.

Before that, I played games and sports all day every day.
