I am a final year undergraduate student in Computer Engineering at the University of Toronto and Vector Institute where I work with Animesh Garg on the intersection of Reinforcement Learning and Computer Vision.

Previously, I was a visiting student at MILA working closely with Anirudh Goyal, Hugo Larochelle and Yoshua Bengio; I was also a visitor at UC Berkeley, working with Trevor Darrell and Zeynep Akata. I have also been very fortunate to work at some amazing startups: AuroraDeepMapConcuredNanoleaf

I spent my high school summers working with Alex Lvovsky working on Quantum Optics and with Guenther Ruhe working on Software Engineering.

My research interests span across Deep Learning and Deep Reinforcement Learning. I am interested in training agents that can learn generalizable representations from data.

I have had the privilege to work with some amazing collaborators, and I am always looking for new students and collaborators. If you are interested in any paper on the website, please get in touch!
