Sverrir Thorgeirsson

I am a PhD student in Computer Science at the University of Waterloo. I work in Chris Eliasmith's lab at the Centre for Theoretical Neuroscience.

Update: As of January 2019, I will be a PhD student in Professor Zhendong Su's lab at ETH Zurich.

Research interests

My research interests include optimization, reinforcement learning, computational neuroscience, cognitive science, and educational software.
