I am a Ph.D. student at the LiNC Lab studying biologically plausible deep learning algorithms.
I am also a Data Scientist Intern at Ivado Labs. Living in Montréal, Canada.

Research Interests

I am interested in researching deep semi-supervised and unsupervised learning models and extending them to novel learning domains.


Ph.D. in Computational Neuroscience, University of Toronto, Canada.
Expected completion: Summer 2020.

Hon. B.Sc. in Mathematics and Physics, University of Toronto, Canada.
Graduated June 2014.
