Peter Kulits

I'm a PhD student at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems co-advised by Michael J. Black and Silvia Zuffi. My current research focus is on large language models and their ability to perceive and reason about the physical world.

I received my bachelor of science degree from Caltech in Dec. 2021, advised by Sara Beery and Pietro Perona, and spent the first six months of 2022 at the Mara Elephant Project in Kenya as a research fellow with Jake Wall. In September of 2022 I started my PhD.
