I am a MSc student under Martha White at the University of Alberta. My current research is on comparing exploration methods in reinforcement learning to better understand their fundamental mechanisms. More generally, I like to think about making sensible, closed-loop control systems using reinforcement learning. I also have positive feelings about applying tools from statistics and machine learning to issues in healthcare, social policy, and the environment.

Sep 2017 - Present, M.Sc. student in Computing Science, University of Alberta.

Sep 2013 - Apr 2017, B.Sc. in Statistics and Computer Science, McGill University.
