About me

I’m a second year Master’s student at Mila and the Reasoning and Learning Lab at McGill University where I work on Reinforcement Learning under the supervision of Prof. Doina Precup. I also hold a Bachelors degree in Mathematics and Software Engineering from McGill University.

My research interests are broadly focused on getting agents to make “optimal” decisions in complex environements (whatever we decide “optimal” means). This leads me to work at the intersection of Reinforcement Learning and Deep Learning.

I’m always interested in learning new things and talking to people about machine learning in general, feel free to reach out if you want to chat!
