Hi there!

I'm a Ph.D. student in Computer Science at McGill University and Mila Institute, working with Blake A. Richards and Doina Precup. My interests lie at the intersection of reinforcement learning and cognitive science, including memory mechanisms for improving sample efficiency, generalization, and planning in reinforcement learning.

Before Joining LiNC lab, I completed my master's degree in Computer Science at Concordia University. My previous research experience includes applying meta-learning  on biological data

While not doing research, I enjoy painting, improvising food, and baking. The recipes of my home-made bread can be found here.
