Before DeepMind, I was a PhD student at the AI lab of VU Brussel, working with Prof. Ann Nowe and Peter Vrancx on reinforcement learning. I am particularly interested in temporal abstraction, off-policy learning and reward shaping. I was also involved in an assistive exoskeleton project, where I was responsible for providing the high-level control, and where I did a lot of prediction.
Before this, I received my Masters degree at Oregon State University with the amazing Prof. Cora Borradaile, working on max flow algorithms in planar graphs.

My CV can be found here, if you are into that kind of a thing.
