About Me

Research Interests

My research focuses on machine learning, particularly deep learning. Most of my research is focused on building fair and safe machine learning and AI systems.

Fairness in Machine Learning

  • Algorithms are used to make or assist with many decisions which impact our lives in fields like marketing, medicine, law, or finance. We need to ensure that algorithmic decisions aren't biased in undesirable ways.
  • Fair algorithms could be used to prevent illegal discrimination by companies and justice systems, make more accurate predictions about clinical treatments , or provide more diverse content filtering methods on social media.
  • I am interested in exploring and defining algorithmic fairness, as well as applying and integrating it with deep learning methods.

I'm also a musician - I love writing, singing, and playing music. I have an album coming out in Summer 2018 - if you're interested, check out my musical website! A couple of years ago I wrote the songs for a musical in the Toronto Fringe Festival. I also play jazz piano and love to improvise.
