Biography

I am a passionate researcher in the domains of machine learning and statistical inference. I enjoy both theory and applications of machine learning spanning the subjects of health, Bayesian statistics, and multi-armed bandits. I use machine learning algorithms and statistical analysis to solve real-world problems; for a list of my recent projects please refer to my project list.

In October 2018, I joined the Intelligent Adaptive Interventions (IAI) group advised by Professor Joseph Jay Williams and in September 2019 I became a graduate student at the University of Toronto. This gave me the opportunity to combine Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) with Machine Learning to improve people’s lives. Prior to this, I worked as a software engineer in Sandvine Inc.

If I am not working, you probably find me playing music or soccer, practicing Yoga, listening to audio-books or spending time with my friends and family. I love to step outside of my comfort zone and challenge myself with new ideas and experiences. To me, everyday brings a new opportunity for learning something new, it just needs the courage and passion to reach and grasp it.
