I am a first year PhD candidate at the University of Alberta, working in Reinforcement Learning. I am fortunate to be advised by Prof. Matthew E. Taylor at the UofA. Previously, I was an AI resident at Facebook AI Research Menlo Park, where I got the chance to work with Dr. Mohammad Ghavamzadeh. Even before, I was an undergraduate at IIT Madras, where I got introduced to RL research by Prof. Balaraman Ravindran.
Currently, I am most interested in representation learning for RL, both in terms of abstraction and generalization theory, and in terms of the deep learning architectures surrounding the topic.
