I joined the Communication and Information Systems group at UCL as a PhD student in September 2017. Prior to joining UCL, I attended the Swiss Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL) where I earned my BSc and MSc degrees in Communication Systems. I was a visiting student in the Computer Science department at ETH Zurich, Switzerland from September 2016 to August 2017 and between June and September 2016 I completed an internship within the Machine Learning group at Data61 CSIRO in Canberra, Australia. 

My research interests lie in the field of machine learning. I am more specifically interested in sequence and decision making modelling using reinforcement learning and deep learning techniques.

In the summer of 2017 I was an intern at IBM Research in Dublin, Ireland where I worked on deep learning applications to natural language processing.

I am currently on leave, working as a Research Intern at Google AI in Zurich, Switzerland.
