PhD Student


I am a PhD student at Mila, advised by Nicolas Le Roux. Previously at Amii + UAlberta, I was an MSc student with Martha White. My research interests broadly include value alignment and AI governance. Recently, I have been interested in measuring harms from language models and in analyzing the incentives that agents have to impact the world. Feel free to reach out to chat about anything!
