I am interested in the computational foundations of intelligence and the technological ramifications that such discoveries may hold. Currently, I wish to inch towards these possibilities by focusing my research efforts on reinforcement learning, human curiosity and crowdsourcing.
Before I was a graduate student, I was an undergrad at the University of Toronto. My summer 2015 was spent working on CHIME (The Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment) with Prof. Keith Vanderlinde where I created web applications to live view data streamed in from the CHIME radio telescope. I also spent 12 months in San Francisco interning at Marin Software where I was an information retrieval and QA automation engineer. Before that, I was an undergraduate research assistant in the summer of 2012, working with Prof. Tarek Abdelrahman where I augmented the LLVM compiler to compile hiCUDA—a programming language designed to provide a high-level interface for GPU programming.
