I'm an assistant professor at University of Montreal's Diro and Mila. I completed my PhD thesis under the supervision of Doina Precup and worked with Emma Brunskill for my postdoc. What drives me as a researcher is the process of understanding and synthesizing disparate concepts into a coherent form. I like to establish connections to other disciplines to build a richer and more complete toolset. My research generally pertains to the challenge posed by the curse of horizon when learning and planning over long time spans. I'm interested to tackle this problem from a representation learning perspective grounded in automatic differentiation and optimization methods.
