I am a PhD student at Mila, advised by Nicolas Le Roux. Previously at Amii + UAlberta, I was an MSc student with Martha White. I currently focus on reinforcement learning and machine learning in fundamental science and social justice contexts. In addition to my research interests, I love to travel, read, and talk to new people every day! Please feel free to reach out to chat about anything!
